This year began completely differently, and more promising, for QUMMIF Investment Club, since compared to last year the club experienced an increase of interest, and thus members, of approximately 200 per cent.

In addition, the urban location in the heart of the U.K. capital offers the vibrant lifestyle of a Londoner, exceptional links with employers and a truly multi-cultural perspective.
