A Platform For Students

The Uptick is also a platform for students in the UofT community to share their thoughts and ideas in the realms of finance, economics, or business. This could take the form of a research article, an opinion column, illustrations, or cartoon satire.

The Uptick is a magazine published by the Rotman Commerce FinTech Association at the University of Toronto. Founded by a group of undergraduates with a common interest in economics and a passion for research-driven journalism, the Uptick is a publication produced entirely by students.

Our objective is to share and promote novel ideas in finance, economics, innovation and technology; we believe that a publication which students can access electronically and in paper was befitting to the task.

We strive to publish insightful and well-researched articles, transcribed interviews with professionals from academia and industry, economic commentaries, summaries of relevant and notable academic literature, finance and economic book reviews, and the occasional opinion column.

Our Philosophy

Much of The Uptick’s content has no obvious ties to the major and current “happenings” of the world. This is not to say that they're not important - far from it. We strive to unearth ideas that are often overlooked as our attention is pulled towards the "bigger" headlines. Our underlying philosophy is simple: Old or new, if there is a lesson to be learned, you will find it in our pages.

"The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds."
-John Maynard Keynes
