COMPETITIONS

Money. Make the most and win, simple. This year we are running two investing competitions separately from the Alpha Fund. This means anyone can take part regardless of investment intellect or degree discipline. The first competition is short-term and has begun now (find details below). Short-term technical trading strategies on volatile securities may be your best bet! The second will be long-term starting in November and will end on the last day of the second semester. Look out for our weekly newsletters and follow us on social media to keep updated with start times. 

Worried you don't know enough to take part? Here are a few things to help you out:

  • Attend our Investing 101 sessions where we teach you how to choose and value securities

  • We are running a Technical Analysis 101 session to help with the shorter time frame competition

  • Read! We have a society-recommended reading list that will help broaden your investment knowledge. Start reading the Financial Times which is free with the university. Click here for instructions

  • Complete Bloomberg's Educational course on financial markets for FREE. Sign up here with your university email. It is mandatory for all Alpha Fund Analysts to complete this course
