We are libor

Rutgers University's Student Run Finance Organization


We focus on placing students in "front-office" positions (Investment Banking, Sales and Trading, Research and Investment Management) at leading firms on Wall Street.

We host a wide range of educational and networking activities throughout the academic year, giving students opportunities to obtain and succeed at interviews. Our meetings and workshops are specifically designed to prepare our members for the rigorous Wall Street interview process. In any given year, the overwhelming majority of Rutgers students who receive summer internship or full time job offers in front-office positions are active LIBOR members.

The Bender Trust Project

The Bender Trust Research Project introduces students to the basics of investment analysis. After a series of training workshops hosted by LIBOR, students formulate and present an equity research report to Greg Francfort, a portfolio manager at Neuberger Berman. Francfort ultimately reviews the student recommendations for the Bender Trust, which was created by David T. Bender for the benefit of student-athletes.


The LIBOR Financial

We are a periodic newsletter written by a selected team of LIBOR members that recaps recent global macro events, the equity, fixed income, commodity and currency markets, and recent M&A and IPO deals. The newsletter also caters to alumni on the Street with special updates on LIBOR events and speakers. Overall, the goal is to develop writers’ opinions on meaningful trends in the financial markets as well as keep members current on the latest news.
