Introducing Beauregard Berton
I am delighted to be selected as the project manager for the IFSA’s Traders’ Cup. This event is one of the largest and internationally most diverse stock market competitions for students.
It is our goal to create an experience that is unique worldwide and resembles what the IFSA stands for. Despite the fact that the IFSA is still young the IFSA’s Traders’ Cup will attract and foster talents from over twelve countries located in four continents, worldwide.
The basic concept of the IFSA’s Traders’ Cup is to enable our members to test their investing abilities, in a competitive environment and with limited risk. Hence, the IFSA’s Traders’ Cup will be freely accessible for all of our members. By using Marketwatch’s stock simulator as a platform we ensure that every participant will have an experience that resembles real life as close as possible.
Moreover, the IFSA’s Traders’ Cup is not only a valuable as experience. Teams that do very well or even win this prestigious competition will add a lot value to their résumé. Personally, I appreciate these two elements (experience and valuable reference) a lot because it represents core values of the IFSA.
Additionally, it makes me work even harder to create this event as I recognize its relevance for our organization. It is my first major event that I organize for the IFSA; the support and dedication I receive from each department is fascinating. I am very grateful for that. Finally, I would like to explain how the IFSA’s Traders’ Cup works.
