The SIFMA Invest! program and virtual platform offers students enrolled at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) a myriad of educational, industry research and career development opportunities for those interested in pursuing a career in financial services.  

SIFMA and the financial services industry recognize that companies that prioritize diversity have better financial performance and that an inclusive environment allows for greater collaboration and innovation. It is imperative there is a diverse talent pipeline for the breadth of career opportunities in financial services. SIFMA believes SIFMA Invest! is one of the tools to help build that pipeline and is proud to partner with HBCUs and MSIs. 

At a glance, SIFMA Invest! provides:

  • Students new and fresh educational resources;
  • Opportunities to study for and take the FINRA Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam;
  • Connect with SIFMA member firms and obtain resume assistance; and
  • Access to mentors and networking opportunities with financial services professionals through virtual events, webinars and student forums.

We thank our higher education partners and are proud to be working with students to help them achieve their career goals. To learn more about the program or would like to partner with SIFMA on this program, contact Niccole Rivero.
