To build a second source of income,  Koren Marinberg, President of Young Investors Club, says it is key to understand the basics of the stock market and to know when to invest.

“Anyone can create a second income on the side of their normal job if they know what they are doing,” Marinberg says. As a finance major graduating in Spring 2020, Marinberg is pushing himself to be part of a wealth management company within the next five years, then to either start his own firm or continue his investment trading career. Marinberg has been apart of Young Investors Club for three years and has grown within the club. He now serves as the current president, allowing him to lead and coach other students on investment banking.

To prepare for weekly meetings, Marinberg collaborates with a team of analysts who formulate equity market views, forecasts, and develops market recommendations to share with other business students in hopes of having a better understanding of financial trends. With more than 100 active members, the Young Investors Club is designed to teach students the fundamentals of how to invest in stock trading.

Aside from hanging out with friends and tailgating before UCF games, Marinberg spends his free time trying to build a stronger portfolio. Being a member of the Young Investors Club has helped him develop a grasp on lucrative investing and trading strategies in the current global and financial markets.

The Young Investors Club welcomes all students, regardless of experience or major, to attend meetings and learn sound financial management skills and discover and share ideas, while networking with some of the brightest minds at UCF.
