The Investment Society was founded in 2007 by Sergio Silva and sponsored by Ronald Sweet in order to educate future business leaders about the financial markets and the economy. The organization started with a group of students that were passionate about investing, and has grown to a vast network of outperforming professionals working at top firms on Wall Street and Fortune 500 companies.
The Investment Society was created to build a network of society members and alumni that have high caliber positions in world class corporations or are successful business owners. We envision being the go-to finance and investment organization at UTSA. We envision a society that is a prominent organization not only at UTSA and in San Antonio, but in the nation as a whole.
Learning via hands on experience
The Investment Society prides itself in the number of alumni who have gone on to achieve outstanding success in the workforce. These members work throughout the globe in industries ranging from finance to energy to technology.
