The annual Bissett Stock Market Challenge sees a record number of student participants
The ATB Investor Services Investment Challenge, otherwise known as the Bissett Stock Market competition, wrapped up at the end of March after seven months. Starting in September 2017, this year saw a record number of 33 teams compete.
The winning team of Austin Glenn, Lucy Javorcikova, and Harrison Lane had an outstanding return of 92%. The second place team of Jarett Bishop, Rob Flach, and Graham Perry managed an impressive 54% return, and the third place team of David Carlson, Amy Gillies, and Ahsan Khan were close behind with a return of 44%. All three teams are the recipients of cash prizes. The winning team is immortalized by having their names inscribed on the Stock market competition trophy. This year’s competition was the 13th edition of the popular competition.
Congratulations to the students and special thanks to Jim Fischer, Associate Professor and faculty adviser for the competition!
