In August 2019, I came up with the concept of The Student Investor. As a non-finance student interested in investments and the financial world, I felt that easily-accessible resources were limited and hard to come by. Thus, I started The Student Investor as a personal WordPress blog, with the hope of sharing some of my internship experiences with others.
After more than 5,000 views in 60 different countries, the blog shifted its focus to explaining some key financial concepts in an Investing 101 series, as well as summarising the week's most pressing financial news in concise and easy-to-follow posts.
In a bid to inspire more students around the world, and to provide an insight into the financial world to those who have little or no pre-existing financial knowledge, in May 2020, we decided to create our own official website. Furthermore, it will now act as the University Of Birmingham's very own newsletter and blog, to capture the interest of thousands of students, both locally and globally.
