WINNERS OF THE 3RD HKBU SBAA SIMULATED INVESTMENT COMPETITION ANNOUNCED

Winners of 2015/16 HKBU SBAA Simulated Investment Competition, the third year since it started in 2011, were recognised and awarded for their time spent on simulated trading and investment report writing.

The Simulated Investment Competition was hosted by School of Business Alumni Association (HKBUSBAA) and came to an end with a certificate presentation ceremony held on 19 Jan 2016 at Interactive Brokers (IB) office. The two winners impressed the judges by their trading strategy, four weeks of trading records and comprehensive investment reports.

This year’s Champion, Miss Gong Shi-yun from our Master of Science in Applied Economics, traded forex pairs predominately and achieved an impressive return of over 10%. She analysed the market conditions after considering macroeconomic factors, for example, central bank policies. Her investment strategy was conservative but progressive, breaking the initial capital into smaller amounts and responded to market fluctuations with caution.
