'Aamdani'-The Finance and Investment Cell

Convenors: Ms. Bijoyata Yonzon, Dr. Devendra Kumar, Ms. Trisha Jolly (Economics Department)

The Finance and Investment Cell (FIC) was founded in 2016, with an initiative from the students of Economics department. It is a society with a blend of academics and practical knowledge that aims to generate and nurture the financial and business acumen of the students. The members of the cell are characterized by the phrase - Money is always on their mind .We do not make profits, we create it!

The society provides a platform to get acquainted with the day to day economic and financial happenings at national and international level through group discussions, debates, paper presentations, case study competitions, interaction with experts and eminent personalities in finance field, virtual stock trading (mock stock competitions) etc. The cell is a catalyst for sharing ideas and imparting practical knowledge and experiences to polish the members and subsequently make them profitable stakeholders and probably future Warren Buffet and Rakesh Jhunjhunwalas!

The FIC organized following events during the session 2016-17:

  • 'In- House events' for the society members in continuum such as 'Stand on brand' where the student's knowledge of Brand logos was judged through an interesting game.
  • Quiz sessions were organized on weekly basis to make the students equipped with all the latest business news.
  • In late February, in collaboration with CVS College, University of Delhi, the society conducted the prelims of various financial games like Best Manager, Best consultant, Business quiz for Bizkreig - The Annual Management Fest of College of Vocational Studies.
  • A seminar on Financial Investment was organized on 31st March 2017 and the key speaker was Mr. Sachin Gupta, (Faculty, Northern India Regional Council for The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India) who gave a talk on 'Portfolio Investment'.
