Merrimack Financial Group


The Merrimack Financial Group was created in 2011 by undergraduates hoping to advance the knowledge of students with interest in finance. The current group adheres to the original outlook through several activities that create a financial environment for group members to experience, including interactions with alumni and current finance professionals, exposure to strategies and techniques to succeed within the financial sector, weekly discussions of current finance related topics, and portfolio management skills. We hope to have anyone who is interested join us at our weekly meetings.
