Founded in 2002, EYE Investment Club is SMU’s largest official finance club committed to connecting you to the world of finance.

Comprising over 1600 members and an alumni network spanning across 18 years, our club is established on a robust foothold with a richly diverse community made up of individuals from varying academic backgrounds and levels of experience.

We hold weekly general meetings and other networking and industry events throughout the year. Here at EYE, we value our ‘family’ culture, making us a club that is both fun and enriching. That is why we have very committed alumni who always come back to mentor us and share about their experiences both in school and at their various jobs, giving us advice on how to grow and learn about investing more effectively.

In addition to our long list of investment knowledge building and networking events that will help you gain more real-world exposure to investing and finance, our main highlights are the Investment Symposium and the Asian Investment Immersion Programme (AIIP). 

We offer two programmes - namely the general member programme and the analyst programme. To find out more, please check out our website, various social media links, and the FAQs.


  1. Investment Symposium
    Investment Symposium is one of EYE Investment Club’s annual flagship events, where we invite esteemed professionals from the finance industry to share their experiences and perspectives on various investment topics to enable our members to gain valuable insights.
  2. Asian Investment Immersion Programme (AIIP)
    The Annual Asian Investment Immersion Programme (AIIP) is our flagship winter event for members to visit various financial institutions overseas to gain a better understanding of global financial markets. This also gives our members the opportunity to learn from and interact with industry professionals. 
  3. Corporate Visits
    Through our Corporate Visits, we aim to provide our members with hands-on opportunities for learning through exposure to diverse working methods, various office environments, as well as to network with industry experts from the various sectors in the finance industry. 
  4. Yearly Women in Finance Talk
    The Women in Finance Talk is another one of EYE Investment Club’s annual flagship events, where we feature successful women to share about how they are making an impact and challenging stereotypical mindsets about female leaders in the finance industry.

"EYE has given my first year a mind and heart– what seemed like the worst year to enter university was turned into a memorable experience of learning and friendship. This is where my expectations for financial knowledge were far exceeded, where the friendships I gained leave nothing to be desired."

- Foo Yong Li, School of Accountancy & School of Business, Year 2


"My past year in EYE has been fruitful and enriching, as I not only gained insights into the Forex market and various financial sectors, but also met many like-minded individuals. The pitches over the semester also allowed me to learn beyond pure content, and the feedback really helped me improve!"

- Liu Hongying, School of Business & School of Computing and Information Systems, Year 2
