Our Story

The Texas Undergraduate Investment Team (TUIT) is the first, premier investment team at The University of Texas at Austin.

Founded in 2007 by Eric Chang and James Peng, the organization offers members a tangible finance-oriented education, a culture of mentorship, and a network for career development. Members learn about investing and financial modeling through the qualitative and quantitative analysis that goes into managing a live $35,000 equity portfolio of investor capital. We focus on developing critical thinking skills that are transferable to any career. TUIT also prides itself on its investment returns and strategy. Our small team dynamic and strong culture of mentorship helps each member pursue their own personal and career goals and ultimately Pay it Forward—our motto.

The original 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, energy, graduate school, entrepreneurship, and much more. As a result, the team now has an extensive global alumni network who remain active in the team’s development.

The 2018-2019 academic year marks our team’s 12th anniversary, and we look forward to another rewarding and promising year.
