MFC Equity is an investment club that identifies potential sources of alpha by employing a growth investing strategy through bottom-up fundamental analysis. The fund is pooled by the club’s handpicked partners, who actively manage their long-only equity portfolio. The club is formed by individuals who study or studied at top British universities. Each member enters the club as an analyst, and required to write investment reports on a biweekly basis. Analyst are promoted to partners if they obtain a track record that meets MFC Equity's rigorous standards.
Our club is driven by our mission statement which reads as follows:
”MFC Equity has the dual aims of educating its members in the art of investing and of applying that knowledge to achieve the highest absolute returns.”
We are delivering lectures on various finance topics, organising workshops and providing feedback through our senior members to the juniors in order to maximise our combined expertise and nurture future leaders of our club.
Each partner invests their own money in the organisation’s fund which is managed together. We firmly believe that together we can generate more in-depth insights, make better decisions, and thus realise above market returns.
In addition, our Macroeconomic Research Group provides thought leadership on macroeconomic events, insights on industries and many more. We hope that our About Markets section speaks for itself, therefore with no further introduction, please check out our latest thought pieces there.
MFC Equity is an international Investment Club, present at multiple locations across Europe, encompassing a truly global community of nearly 100 members of numerous nationalities.
Despite its current scale, the organisation was launched as a student club in 2013. The founding members having met through the Milestone Institute, a Hungarian educational organisation, decided to establish the Milestone Finance Club. Originally, their purpose was to develop a deep understanding of financial markets and learn the fundamentals of investing. What initially started out as a hobby has over time transformed into a unique investing platform that leverages the collective expertise of MFC’s diverse member base.
In the first two years of operations, we have laid out the foundations including formulating our investment hypothesis and operating model. Simultaneously, we also started practicing investing with virtual money. By December 2015, the platform was set to launch the Club’s first real portfolio. However, that was only the beginning, and since then the investment processes are being continuously refined and developed further. Amongst other initiatives, we are adding new aspects to our investment framework such as ESG and have been developing our own risk management models.
While the continuous innovation in our investment processes drive our performance, we have also achieved significant successes in our organisational development. In 2017 we started expanding to new locations by replicating the same operating models that we developed over time. As many of our members study at various universities, we were well positioned to expand into these new locations. As of today, we have operations in St. Andrews, London and most recently in Cambridge. We very much see this as only the beginning, and we are working hard to expand to further locations throughout Europe, the US and Asia.
We strongly believe that a few key values made our success to date possible. As we continue to develop our expertise and scale up the organization, we are eager to ensure that these values remain to be at our core.
Our vision #1 is to become the ultimate boarding school of finance professionals by recruiting the brightest talents internationally and being recognised as such in the finance industry.
Our vision #2 is to launch additional funds with different risk profiles and eventually being able to serve all type of investors.
