Our Team

President

On behalf of the FISA team and the John Molson School of Business community, it is with great pride that I extend this invitation to your organization. Our value proposition is simple: gain exposure to one of the largest Finance undergraduate student demographics in Quebec, all while enabling their personal and professional development, through student-run initiatives.

As FISA’s reach continues to grow, so too does the scope and scale of the events we are able to offer. Our Toronto Firm Tours continue to showcase a selection of top-tier JMSB students to some of the most sought-after jobs in capital markets; Our themed conferences provide students with insight and the opportunity to start a discussion; Our commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration drives us to host events like our FinTech Case Competition and Future of Finance Conference; And with our open-outcry trading simulation, we continue to introduce students of all backgrounds, and universities to the world of finance.

Our corporate sponsors are ultimately the fuel we need to launch such ambitious projects. Your support allows FISA to continue developing Concordia’s students into talented, young professionals that are equipped with the technical skills and business acumen they need to successfully enter the market and excel in their careers. 

Warm Regards,
Andrea Kilibarda

Vice-President

 

The Finance and Investment Students’ Association (FISA), along with its subsidiaries the John Molson Trading League (JMTL) and the John Molson Investment Society (JMIS), seeks to shape the next generation of Finance professionals attending the John Molson School of Business.

Our aim is to help bridge the growing gap between what students are taught in a classroom and what they need to know before entering the workforce. As the largest finance association in Quebec, we act as a resource to over 2000 undergraduate students.

We have built this community on three key pillars. Community, where we engage a variety of communities to better position students for the future of finance. Collaboration, by partnering with other finance associations to facilitate idea sharing and creation. Communication, for better internal and external connections to setup a foundation for growth.

FISA is proud to represent and lead all Finance majors at the John Molson School of Business in crucial initiatives such as sustainability and diversity in the workplace. This is done through our various workshops, panels and events. We look forward to welcoming new members to our FISA family this coming year.

Yours truly,

Nicholas Whitehead
