The Economics and Finance Department (EAF) launched the first EAF Investment Competition in Semester one to promote students’ interests in investment and financial markets. A total of 18 teams participated and started their simulated trading and investing activities in early September. After 7 weeks of managing their investment portfolios, five teams with the highest rate of return were shortlisted for the finalist round in which teams were required to prepare a presentation to explain their investment strategies.
Overall, we saw very impressive work. The five finalist teams demonstrated their hard work and well thought out strategies. It was really a hard decision of who is ultimately going to be the champion of the competition. There are just a few points of difference among the winners. Finally, we announced the winners as follow:
Champion: Bullbear team awarded HK$3,000 cash coupon
1st Runner-up: HDZ team awarded HK$2,000 cash coupon
2nd Runner-up: Halia team awarded HK$1,000 cash coupon
Special prize: Champion and Voyagers teams each team member awarded HK$100 cash coupon
Very well done to all the participating teams!
