Baruch MFE Baruch MFE wins 1st and 2nd place at RITC 2021; 5th win overall


Baruch MFE Director
Two Baruch MFE teams won First and Second place at the 2021 Rotman International Trading Competition that took place virtually on February 19, 2021, and included 45 teams from academic institutions from Asia, Europe, and North America.

This is the fourth Baruch MFE win in six years, after winning in 2021, 2020, 2017, and 2016 (and fifth overall, including our first win in 2012)!

The success of our students is a tribute to their great consistency and self-discipline, their intensive preparation for the competition, and their trading and analytical skills. Last but not least, our students demonstrated outstanding teamwork throughout.

Our teams were first and second in the liquidity risk case, first and third in commodities trading, and third and seventh in algo trading. The Case Summaries and the results are attached.

Congratulations to our winners, Shawn Roy, Jordan Wang, Simon Xiong, Nelson Yeung, Kai Ge, Mohammed Jahan, Tafhim Islam, and Simon Mei, and to our coach Professor Jarrod Pickens!
