Quinnipiac G.A.M.E. IV Forum Trip 2014

Posted: Wednesday, February 19th 2014 at 11:53 AM

On March 20-22, 2014, a few hand-selected students will get to travel to New York City to go to the Quinnipiac Global Asset Management Education (G.A.M.E.) IV Forum. The students were chosen by David Allen, associate professor of finance, and Matt Haertzen, senior lecturer of finance, from the FIN 441 and FIN 442 courses.

There are going to be several notable keynote speakers including Richard Bernstein, Abby Joseph Cohen, and David M. Darst, just to name a few. On the first day of the forum, in a panel with the speakers, they will be discussing a range of topics including the global economy, global markets, and alternative assets versus equities. Students will be able to interact with the panel by asking questions and hearing feedback directly from the speakers. On the second day, there will be breakout sessions led by one or two speakers to about 30 students. This provides the opportunity for a more intimate discussion where the students can hear about how the speaker does their job and what their job entails. Throughout the day, students will hear from four to five speakers. The last day of the forum includes more breakout sessions.

Another component to the G.A.M.E. Forum is an investment competition for students. Since the FCB finance team managed an actual portfolio in 2013, they are able to submit their portfolio for the competition. The portfolios will then be rated from highest to lowest on their performance data. There will be winners from different categories such as stock portfolios and bond portfolios. This is a great way for students to put their knowledge and skills to the test.

This is an amazing opportunity and should be an exciting trip!
