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 are currently recruiting for the Fall 2023 semester. 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 at with any questions.

Recruiting Process Outline

Info Session: We require applicants to attend an info session where we’ll share more about UCF and what we do. This is also a chance to talk to UCF members about the organization as well! Additionally, we’ll do a short skills-alignment activity which will encompass probability, computer science, and finance concepts. Don’t worry, this activity is designed to help us better understand where your strengths lie and is only a part of our assessment process.

Trading Games & Social: The second step of our process includes a social and fun, interactive trading game activity. You’ll have the opportunity to mingle with fellow applicants and current UCF members. You will also get the chance to play some trading games in small groups that are designed to be a fun way for us to understand how you think and get a glimpse into what market-making looks like. No prior knowledge of trading or finance is necessary!

Interviews: Select applicants will be invited for our final round which consists of a brief set of interviews. Interviews are a chance for us to dive deeper into your background and skill set!


Since graduating UT, our alumni have gone to top firms in diverse industries, a few of which are pictured below.
