Delft's investment society; by students, for students.
It all started in 2014 with a visit to the Zuidas in Amsterdam, the financial center of the Netherlands. With a group of students, studying at the TU Delft for the Finance minor, we visited ABN AMRO and Kempen & Co to get a better understanding of how a financial institution operates. Most of us had never seen a trading desk before.
Applying our technical and mathematical skills to financial challenges was something new; after all, we were studying to become engineers. By the end of the minor and the company visits, it was clear that many of us wanted to pursue a career in the financial world. So that’s what we did!
Together, we established our own investment association where we could apply the theory from our minor. We collectively manage our portfolios and make adjustments based on current economic developments. Additionally, we continuously expand our knowledge by attending symposiums, organizing finance-related activities, and maintaining close ties with financial institutions.
Currently, many of our members and alumni work for major firms such as Robeco, Flow Traders, PwC, Jump Trading, and Goldman Sachs. We believe that Bona Fide provides the perfect platform to exchange ideas and thereby become better investors, poised for a future in the financial world.
Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.
Abigail Adams, 1780
