The 12th Annual ATB Investor Services Investment Challenge, otherwise known as the Bissett Stock Market Competition, is up and running. Students in teams of three have until March 31, 2017 to maximize their returns in a real-time simulation. The members of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams win cash prizes and a luncheon with members of ATB Investor Services. The 1st place team is also immortalized on the Stock Market Competition trophy. The competition is grateful to ATB for their support of this competition. For more details, contact Jim Fischer.
The Financial Students Organization (FSO) has undertaken some fund raising initiatives this semester. On a challenge from Jim Fischer, the FSO is attempting to raise $2,000 to be split evenly between the Terry Fox Foundation and the United Way. If they are successful, the stakes are a public shaving of Jim’s beard on October 25! This much anticipated event will take place in the Bissett 2nd floor atrium at 12:00 noon. Refreshment will be provided.
