Audacity was revived in 2009 by international students. The group won the investment competition in 2010/2011 and arrived second in 2011/2012.
Audacity is the oldest international group still existing, and the most international group of the society with 13 different nationalities from 3 continents. We are here to learn, try new financial products, get to know companies, have fun and the highest possible returns on our investments. We use fundamental and technical analysis, together with research from different sources to help us make the right decisions. We use a long/short strategy on equities, commodities, options, and turbos on all kind of underlying securities. We use an investment framework to prevent excessive negative returns, and focus mostly on value investing.
Audacity’s members are all passionate, highly motivated about finance and have an international background. We are third year bachelor and master students with a little work experience in the industry. We combine our knowledge and experience to optimize our returns by limiting risks. The group is not only about learning but also about social cohesion: we are a big family. Our members are pro-active, good students, and great entrepreneurs with a well-known love of partying. Everybody participates in the group and is listened to because we believe that debating, talking and discussing are the best ways to take the best decisions.
Compared to other investment groups, we meet on a weekly basis, invest more money, and perform a more in-depth research.
