OUR VALUES

These are the values that guide us, the decisions we make, our actions within and beyond the Association, and the consequences of everything we do. 

Passion and Commitment: Passion is at the heart of what we do. We are continuously moving forward, learning and improving.

Diversity and Community: We know it takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests, and cultural backgrounds to make a success. Our teamwork is our strength.

Integrity and Sustainability: We are honest, open, ethical, and fair. We are committed in our pursuit and fulfillment of a sustainable cause.

OUR ENVIRONMENT

We are a student association gathered together by the same passion. We are based at the UNIL-EPFL campus in Lausanne and we collaborate closely with both professional and academic worlds. 

HOW WE MANAGE PROFIT

The Investment Society Lausanne is a non-profit association whose goal is purely educational, and therefore, we do not distribute profits. These will be used for the club’s operational and charitable activities. We exist in order to provide real-life experience to our members concerning investment management, research behind the numbers and cooperation with other people. In the end, it is all about working hard, collaborating efficiently and trying for the best outcome.
