Teams of students from the Rady School Master of Finance program placed first and third at the 2020 Chicago Quantitative Alliance Investment Challenge!
From October 2019-March 2020, the students managed a portfolio with the goal of achieving the best risk-adjusted performance. “As we all know, this has been a very challenging time for equity investing and our teams did a great job,” said MFin Executive Director Michael Melvin, who served as the teams’ faculty advisor.
The teams scores were based 80% on risk-adjusted performance and 20% on a ten-minute video presentation about their investment strategy. The Rady MFin teams were mentored by CQA member Tom Anichini of Guided Choice.
