The Investment Analysis Group was originally conceived as the Dow Jones Surfers in 1995 and launched as the Market Surfers in 1996 by Justin Pollack. Over the past 21 years, IAG has transformed into the powerhouse investment club of Stern and one of the top student investment clubs in the nation through the extraordinary talent of its members, the unique resources of NYU Stern, and the unbeatable location of New York City.
The resources that IAG provides its members have never been more important. Weekly workshops and a membership development program for new members allow students to build their skills, while weekly stock pitches provide a space for those skills to be tested.
IAG is designed to mimic a buy-side investment management firm; the club manages NYU's only undergraduate real money investment portfolio. Through all aspects of our organization, we take pride in the professionalism of our operations and how the knowledge and experience our members gain shapes their future success in the financial industry and the global economy.
