UK University Trading Challenge
March 02, 2018

Participants experience an incomparable simulation of real-world trading while demonstrating their abilities to analyze, strategize, make decisions, and give presentations. They get an invaluable glimpse into the real world of the capital markets as well as true insight into themselves and their suitability to a finance career.

Description
The approach we took towards creating the competition, was to draw upon our root in training in the capital markets. We wanted to provide students the same type of challenges that they would encounter in a new Analysts or Associate program.

In the realistic and intensely educational competition, teams of 4- students go head-to-head in simulated situations in four (4) distinct challenges: 1) Trading Challenge, 2) Portfolio Challenge, 3) Treasury Challenge, and 4) Investment Banking Presentation. Each competition area highlights products or strategies exclusive to the capital markets. See below for details on each of the three segments.

Trading Challenge 25% of the Competition Results
Portfolio Challenge 25% of the Competition Results
Treasury Challenge 25% of the Competition Results
Investment Banking Presentation Challenge 25% of the Competition Results
