Equity Monks
About Us

Equity Monks is the trading club of IIM Udaipur. Started in 2021, the club aims to promote a culture of trading in the IIMU community. It helps the community learn about managing their personal finance as an additional source of income going ahead in different types of financial markets. The club's primary purpose is to get community interested in the world of trading and learn systematically with experience rather than avoiding the same as a risky affair.

Being a student-run campus organization, the club is run by students of MBA2 and MBA1 together. It has been given the status of a Special Interest Group (SIG). Since the formation of Equity Monks as an SIG, the club has proved its vision by taking multiple initiatives into action.


Our vision is to create leaders in the trading world, both professional and retail traders. The club aims to improve the learning of the entire community and make IIMU the best B-School in terms of trading. The club would enable the students to learn and think like traders during their MBA journey before entering the industry.

About the Logo

The logo represents one Monk in the centre, which depicts the calmness and patience of the trader – Equity Monk. The candlesticks in a light-yellow colour in the background represent the trading desk present in the back of the trader's mind, even during non-trading hours. Two squares enclose the Monk, one is white, and the other is solid yellow. This represents two different perspectives of the trader's thinking during trading in the market.

Our Initiatives:
T-Word series:

This initiative aims to make students of the community aware of the concepts and terms of the stock market in a simplistic manner. Equity Monks believes in making trading a systematically learned approach rather than a bag full of jargon.

The club shares a T-word every day in the form of QnA on its Instagram handle to expand the community's horizons about the stock market.
