Invested Interests: Wharton Global Investment Competition 2021

Invested Interests: Wharton Global Investment Competition 2021

On Monday 27th September 14 teams of savvy investors from Bangkok Prep competed against 1,000 other teams of student investors from around the world in the Wharton Global Investment Competition 2021.

Our team leaders met with Mr Groves, Mr Kumar and Ms Arora on Thursday to examine a brief case study featuring a potential client and they have been tasked with working collaboratively to meet that client’s short- and long-term investment goals as they try to win his or her business. Equipped with an approved stock list (a selection of domestic and international equities) and the Wharton Investment Simulator (WInS), which allows them to buy and sell stocks, over the course of 10 weeks students develop an investment strategy, analyse industries and companies, and build a portfolio using $100,000 in virtual cash.

Winners are selected on the strength and articulation of their team strategies, not on the growth of their portfolios, which is a key differentiator between this investment challenge and others. During the competition each team submits two deliverables.

Final reports are reviewed by a team of judges, who select 50 semi-finalist teams. Those teams are invited to present their strategies to a panel of expert judges at the virtual Semifinals. The top 10 teams from the Semifinals move on to the Global Finale at Wharton in Philadelphia.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to explore the exciting world of securities and strategies, learn about risk, diversification, company and industry analysis and more investing basics. Success will depend on effective teamwork, leadership and strong communication skills. Please wish the following students luck:
