About the club

Niveshak, the Finance and Investment Club of IIM Shillong is the oldest club founded by the students at the institute. Every month, the club publishes its magazine, Niveshak, which invites articles from students across the country. The editorial team of the club bears upon itself the tough task of shortlisting, analysing and editing the articles received to be published in the magazine. Having a nationwide readership, the team ensures articles of top quality on important issues are printed that give investors not just information, but insights from students prospecting to become leading investors themselves. In addition to articles, the editorial team highlights some recent events which have created a spark in the financial markets, interviews with investment bankers and stock analysts from leading enterprises and highlighting lessons learn from historical events in addition to articles by students. 

The Niveshak Investment Fund, a fund created and managed by the members of the club has shown an impressive performance in generating returns from the funds invested. The club has established a target portfolio with representation of various industries and stocks. The composition of the portfolio is periodically reviewed and rebalanced as needed. The team analyses various research reports, historical returns and runs a model to analyse and predict potential returns.

IIM Shillong has the privilege of being the National Winners at the HSBC IB League and National Runners Up at the Nomura Investment Banking Competition. We also host other events such as views from experts during budget sessions, live classroom sessions on concepts, events and trends and constantly share articles of interest on social media. Going forward, the club aims to scale greater heights with an ongoing process of establishing a fund open to investment by students, faculty and other members of the institute. We also are in the process of setting up sessions to educate the local crowd of Shillong on the basics of savings and investment.
