“QUIC is Canada’s premier student-run asset management organization, with
$1.2 million in commited capital”
In 2009, QUIC began its fundraising initiatives.
As members conducted exam-review tutorials for Commerce Students, raising over $13,604 in the process. The fundraising effort culminated in 2010 when the Queen’s School of Business contributed seed money to reach a total of $500,000 in initial capital.
In this transition, the Queen’s University Investment Club became the Queen’s University Investment Counsel – an Educational Program of the Queen’s School of Business, which highlights the partnership between the School of Business and our team.
The QUIC Governance Structure.
A Board of Directors, consisting of faculty and staff at the Queen’s School of Business, was established to oversee the fund’s investments and provide guidance to the Counsel’s executive. An Alumni Council, consisting of six Queen’s Commerce graduates who had been involved with QUIC, was also established to mentor members and guide the executive. In 2011, a third governing body – the Advisory Board – was created consisting of prominent members of the finance industry to help guide QUIC and act as a bridge to the finance industry.
QUIC’s tradition of student leadership, mentorship and hard work has created a solid foundation as we continue to grow into the next stage, making history as we go. In September 2010, QUIC opened an account with CIBC Wood Gundy.
