The Wharton Investment and Trading Group (WITG, for short) is the premier undergraduate institution for professional preparation in finance-related careers. As the largest finance/education-oriented organization at Penn, our investment and development teams both teach the principles of value investing, trading, business analysis, and quantitative finance, between development sessions and active pitches/work under the supervision of team portfolio managers (PMs). WITG is a thriving hub of over 300 dedicated members who strive to dive deep into the fundamentals of investing, trading, business analysis, and quantitative finance across a myriad of industry sectors.
The Development Team is a semester-long educational program that gives freshmen and sophomores the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of valuation and stock analysis with no previous experience required.
Students also have the opportunity to join Investment Teams in which upperclassman Portfolio Managers guide analysts in each group through the process of pitching a stock - from sourcing, researching, and valuing to effectively delivering a presentation.
