Press Release: "Registration Open - Spring 2016 ETF Portfolio Challenge"

New York, NY—November 18, 2015 - We are pleased to announce that registration for the Spring 2016 ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge is open as of Monday, November 16th!

With undergraduate and graduate students from four continents competing in the inaugural investment challenge this past fall, the ETF Global Portfolio Challenge now offers a streamlined registration process and increased rebalancing opportunities!

ETF Global has established a near-term goal of 1 million participants in 2018. Given young investors’ mounting interest in ETFs coupled with ETF Global’s track record of achieving scale in its initiatives, this goal certainly seems attainable – who knows how many participants they can reach in the long term!

Reginald Browne, Senior Managing Director of Cantor Fitzgerald’s ETF Group and a founding Sponsor of the ETF Global Portfolio Challenge stated that, “ETFs are poised to become a dominant investment vehicle for emerging investors. It is critical, therefore, to ensure that future investors have the knowledge to invest in ETFs and achieve their financial goals. ETF Global understands this. Their portfolio challenge is an interactive way to help familiarize collegians with ETFs and instill in them investment and portfolio management skills that will benefit them far beyond the classroom.”

Additionally, Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS), the award-winning data research platform and business intelligence tool from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, immediately saw the educative value of the ETF Portfolio Challenge. “Most students lack a basic understanding of investing in general,” said Robert Zarazowski, Managing Director of WRDS, “The ETF Portfolio Challenge is an innovative way of extending investment and ETF education into the classroom. We are thrilled to promote this effort to educate the next generations of investors about investing and ETFs.”

Registration for the spring 2016 semester is open and will close on Friday, February 12th. For more information about the contest, please visit
