NEW YORK, NY -- May 11, 2015 -- Three seniors claimed first prize last week after a year-long portfolio management competition for Baruch College students, sponsored by Santander Shareholder Relations.
About forty student teams from throughout the College participated in the competition, which required them to create a prospectus for a simulated mutual fund and manage investments in stocks within that fund.
As members of the winning team, Pierre-Willy Jullien, Vicente Echeverria and Scott Morrison share a $3,000 top prize. A group of Santander representatives evaluated the top five teams based on the risk-adjusted return of the funds and the final report describing their strategy.
The competition was administered by Professors Richard Holowczak of Computer Information Systems and Eduardo Malca of Economics & Finance.
