As you know, Z Club is a non-profit organization established in 2018 with the aim of helping our next generation to start their journey of becoming investors with a long-term mindset. As a part of our program, we provided initial $5,000 capital to be managed by 6 teams (the “Endowment Program”). Each team is comprised of 3–4 university students in China and Singapore. They manage highly concentrated portfolios of public equity positions based on their fundamental research. The investment process is designed to be collaborative and structured as each investment must be discussed and agreed at an investment committee.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions. If you know someone who is interested in offering internship opportunities for students who are gaining real-money investment experiences based on their own judgment, please let us know.
