Texas UCF is a student-run organization that manages a portfolio of equities and equity options. We take a holistic approach in evaluating potential investments, analyzing from fundamental, quantitative, and technical perspectives. Our primary goal is to educate our members and other UT students in the subjects of mathematics, finance, and computer science.
Our members may come from a variety of backgrounds; however, we all share an interest in bridging computational methods and financial markets. Some UCF members specialize in fundamental or quantitative analysis, while others practice both. Regardless, members gain exposure to both worlds. We actively introduce quantitative finance opportunities to our members through our curriculum and unique career opportunities.
UCF seeks individuals curious in math, programming, or finance. Members learn about statistical modeling and computational finance by managing a portfolio of equity and equity options. Finance knowledge is not a prerequisite for joining, and we are open to all majors. We will be recruiting for the Spring 2022 semester in the near future. Check out the image below for more details. All prospective members are required to attend an info session at the below locations/times. For the latest updates, please feel free to contact us with any questions.

UCF is a non-profit organization that donates a majority of returns to charity. The remainder of returns is kept within the portfolio in order to grow the size of the fund.

With this in mind, we gladly welcome all donations to allow us to properly diversify our portfolio and minimize risk.
There are four major benefits for donating to UCF:
Even small donations will help advance our goals and grow our fund size. You can donate today. If you would like more information on our organization, please feel free to contact us.
