Winners Announced - Fall 2019 ETF Global Portfolio Challenge

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - After 10 weeks of close competition, the Fall 2019 ETF Global Portfolio Challenge has come to a conclusion. The competition began on September 30th and ended this past Friday, December 6th. Our contestants all began the semester with a virtual balance of $100,000 and with the task of constructing the best performing portfolio of ETFs.

Students were afforded weekly rebalancing opportunities and allowed to invest in a minimum of 4 and maximum of 10 ETFs at a time. While the challenge came down to the wire, these select students were able to separate themselves from the competition.  Please join us in congratulating the Fall 2019 Winners!
