Previous/other names: University Investment Syndicate

Prominent date(s) of activity: 1952 - 1960

History: The UNB Investment Syndicate was established to give students practical knowledge about the stock market and business practices through the actual buying and selling of stocks and the trading of shares among members.

Activities: Theoretical knowledge was supplemented through the viewing of films, presentations by guest speakers, reviewing of reports on Canadian companies, and discussions about investment topics among members.

Note(s): In 1952 the club sought to increase the number of female members, in order to make the group more co-ed.

By 1960, there were four investment groups at UNB, representing a cross-section of the student body: Aitken Investments, Co-ed Investments, Students' Securities Club, and University Investment Syndicate.
