LBS Systematic Investment Strategy Competition 2019

IMC presents its third edition of LBS Systematic Strategy Competition. The event is organised by Investment Management Club and supported by the AQR Asset Management Institute.

The objective of the competition is to design systematic investment strategies. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your skills in creating investment strategy, data-analysis, back-testing, and risk management. The teams also get a chance to present their investment strategy and performance to a panel of highly distinguished senior professionals from the asset management industry. It would be a wonderful opportunity to meet and network with potential employers as well.

The Judges will provide invaluable insights and feedback to all the finalists on their investment strategy. The winning team will be awarded cash prize of £1,000/- sponsored by AQR Asset Management Institute.
