The Finance Club was launched as an effort to educate interested others about the fun side of finance. It is an effort to educate ourselves and others about various tools and products and studies related to finance. We have organised various events regarding the domains of finance, that includes talks on Cryptocurrency, Union Budget, Investments in various securities markets. The club also promotes initiatives from its members to organise discussions and a platform for sharing knowledge. The club is guided by our faculty coordinator Dr. Santhosh Kumar S.
The purpose of our club is to promote among the members and the community around us to have financial literacy and make people aware of the opportunities that are available to them. Finance club also aims at becoming a platform for its members to explore the world of finance be it the technical details of various forms of accounting to the new world of blockchains. It's our purpose to be an inclusive club with people from all backgrounds collaborating with each other.
