Executive Team
Massil Beguenane

Massil is a fourth-year Commerce student, specializing in Finance and majoring in Economics. Since his debut in university, Massil realized he had a keen interest in investing and so his pathway to finance took shape.

As the co-president, Massil collaborates with the other members and the executive team to lead the operations and the fund’s investments. The idea of starting this club first came to him over the summer while discussing with a couple of work colleagues about their university experience. He quickly realized most of them attributed their professional successes to co-curricular activities such as being part of a student club, thus decided to model a student initiative around his interests in business. The club now has 6 executives and is very excited to witness the growth of the fund this upcoming year.
