Our History

Western Algorithmic Trading (WA) is Western’s newest finance club that currently has over 120 members. The club was first established in the summer of 2021 by a group of 3 Western students who were passionate about algorithmic trading. They recognized the lack of and need for a dedicated student organization that could provide them with the additional support and resources needed to pursue a career in algorithmic trading and finance.


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to succeed in the finance industry. Additionally, Western Algorithmic Trading aims to create an engaged community of like minded individuals with a passion for finance and coding. Through educational events, networking opportunities, and hands-on experiences, we aim to prepare our members for a range of finance-related careers. We also aim to foster a sense of community among finance-focused and computer science students. We believe that by fostering a passion for finance/coding and a commitment to professional development, we can help our members make a positive impact in the world of finance and beyond.
