About Us

The Trading Club is an official club at the University of St. Gallen with more than 300 registered members. We aim at providing our members with the possibility to enter into the world of trading and finance. This includes helping members to decide if this is the field they later want to work in and if so, enabling them to obtain the tools, knowledge and network necessary to be successful in it. We try to fulfill this commitment through the three different pillars that are the foundation of the Trading Club, namely trading events, the trading challenge and social events.

Become a Member


The main idea of the Trading Club is to provide members with real world insights into the industry by bridging the gap between students and companies.

Please find below the details to the particular events and already save the dates in your agenda. We look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming events.
