Beacom Students Win First Place in International Portfolio Competition
“Winning the prestigious G.A.M.E. forum in an international setting demonstrates that our students come out on top when competing with the brightest competition around the world,” said Venky Venkatachalam, Ph.D., dean of the Beacom School of Business. “Coyote Capital Management students gain a significant advantage from participating in these competitions that will ensure success in their career endeavors.”
The Quinnipiac Global Asset Management Education Forum is the largest student-run financial conference in the world with more than 1,500 students from more than 150 universities, representing 46 states and 41 countries. Students who have managed an actual portfolio during a full calendar year can take part in the student-managed portfolio competition. The competition was based on the portfolio submitted during registration and judged on the risk-adjusted returns.
The winning team from Coyote Capital Management was comprised of 55 student members of which 12 are senior analysts who have voting rights, 30 junior analysts and 23 new members. Furthermore, CCM offers several leadership positions including president, vice president, portfolio manager, risk manager, domestic and international economist and model consultant. The Coyote Capital Management portfolio consists of three sub-portfolios – the Student portfolio, Dean’s portfolio and USD Foundation portfolio. As of April 2018, assets for these funds total approximately $2 million.
