Dear Stakeholder,

I have the pleasure to inform you about the formidable growth the IFSA has undergone during the past two years. Starting from scratch in April 2014, the organisation was only a mental projection. It is now the largest finance organisation run by students in the world. With chapters established in fourteen countries across five continents, we have become a globally recognised institution with an unmatched influence and network.

Through hard work and talent, our intercontinental network has managed to organise worldwide projects such as the IFSA Traders’ Cup; which in its first edition became the largest trading challenge organised by students to date. Furthermore, together with our partners, we provided our members with numerous events involving prestigious companies such as J.P. Morgan, Bloomberg, Accenture, Credit Suisse, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Morgan Stanley, and Sberbank.

With innovation and excellence as key drivers, we are now working on diversifying our activities not only to broaden our influence but also to discover new opportunities. While the IFSA enjoys its independence, we also aim to strengthen our ties with corporations by providing them with a new set of exclusive services.

I would like to personally thank our people who everyday, relentlessly, develop our brand and implement our vision. I would also like to thank all of the organisations we are working with for their trust and loyalty. Finally, I wish to thank the people who personally helped me and supported me since the inception of this project. From an idea, we became an empire and, without your support, this would not have happened.

In two years, we achieved more than most. However, the best is yet to come.

Yours sincerely,

Jules Maitrepierre
Founder & President
