New Top 5 Winners - Welcome New Executive Sponsor Fidelity!

We thank and welcome the new Executive Sponsor of the ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge - Fidelity!

Friday, December 2, marked the end of the Fall 2016 ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge, as students from around the globe vied against each other in a semester-long challenge to build the best performing portfolios of ETFs. Starting with a virtual balance of $100,000, students constructed portfolios of between 4-10 ETFs and competed on the basis of their portfolios’ total return.

Now in its 2nd year, the ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge continued to expand its global footprint, attracting students from more than two hundred universities. This broad global participant base created no shortage of competition, as there was constant change atop our leaderboard. Against this deeply competitive playing field, five savvy investors were able to distance themselves from their fellow contestants.

Please join us in congratulating the Top 5 winners of the Fall 2016 ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge!

As the winners of this semester’s challenge, these students will be recognized at the ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge Awards Ceremony Ceremony during the Spring 2017 ETP Forum on Friday, April 7 at The New York Athletic Club.

Our Spring 2016 portfolio challenge winners just wrapped up their experience at the ETP Forum last week, which featured a private tour of the NASDAQ market site, being interview by Bloomberg Radio and presentations by WorldQuant and SEI during their Awards Ceremony – our Fall 2016 winners can expect more of the same!

ETF Global is proud to support this initiative and play a part in the education of the next generation of investors. As the ETF industry continues its explosive growth, we encourage all college students to take advantage of this opportunity and learn about this fast-growing investment vehicle before they enter the marketplace.

Spring 2017 Registration is open and can be found here:
