The association currently called KTH Finance Society (KTHFS) was formed in 1994 by a group of engineering students from the Industrial Engineering and Management program. Their common denominator was their interest in securities trading, and the new association was named the Royal Institute of Technology's Stock Society (in Swedish, KTHs Aktiesällskap).
The original clubhouse was equipped with computers with real-time information and was provided by Ecovision. At that time, this was highly coveted and interest in the association grew as the years went by and more and more finance-related activities were organized.
During the years of operation 2001/2002, it was clear that the association's activities in accordance with the demand had grown to encompass more than financial instruments and it was therefore natural with a change of name to KTH Finance Society in March 2002. Since then, KTHFS are continuously organizing company events, seminars and study visits for our members.
Below follows a brief timeline of KTHFS development since the start.
