TUIT was founded in 2007 as the Investment Team for ABSA by Eric Chang and James Peng. The purpose of the team was to offer members a tangible finance-oriented education, establish a culture of mentorship, and provide a network for career development.
The original Investment Team consisted of only a few members, mainly juniors and seniors, and has now grown to include an average of 20-25 members from all academic years. Over time, members have pursued interests in investment banking, private equity, tech, consulting, graduate school, entrepreneurship, and much more. As a result, the team now has an extensive alumni network around the world.
Since 2007, the team has continued to add value to both its investors and members. Alumni remain active in the development and progression of the team through investing, social events, and finance expertise. Though we stress professionalism in TUIT, we also place heavy emphasis on building strong relationships with each other. We are proud of the environment our founders have created and we are excited to continue working alongside smart, motivated peers with a wide range of experiences.
