During the 2020-2021 school year, the Allegheny College Wealth Management Club was focused on gaining new members. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions in place, the club was unable to participate in many events, and instead turned to planning for the 2021-2022 school year. Current President Rachel Tobler ‘21 and Vice President Alex Abadi ‘21 worked on spreading the news about the club, whose purpose is to provide a simple and clearer understanding of personalized finance and the instruments that it uses.
This involves attending CFA Society events, workshops on personal finance, and any other events members want to see involving investment and personal budgeting. At the end of the spring semester, the officers have been working with incoming President Morgan Libell ‘22 and Vice President Kevin Lee ‘23 to further increase membership and restart regular club meetings and events in the fall. Promotional campaigns, expansion of the board, and event planning have been the focus this year to get the Wealth Management Club running and successful in the fall of 2021!

The Wealth Management Club is designed to give students a collaborative environment in which they can openly discuss and learn about topics relating to personal finance. The club will invite guest speakers, use simulations, and perform individual research in order to educate members about personal finance topics and learn how to get a head start on managing their own money.
