On April 6, the School’s BBA student and graduate delegations took all the team and individual honours at the 16th edition of the HEC Montréal interuniversity trading simulation (SBIU), bringing together over 342 finance and administration students from 10 Quebec universities.
First of all, the student team of Francis Desrosiers, Jonathan Desrosiers, Antoine Lamarche and Alexandre Tougas won first place and a $2,000 prize from the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. In second place, Xavier Ducharme, Vincent Morency-Laplante and Julien Théberge (BBA 2012), and student Keven Tardif came away with a $1,500 purse. Third place and a $1,000 prize went to Benjamin Achache (BBA 2009), Pierre Laroulandi (student in mathematics education at the Université de Montréal), Marc Laurent-Atthalin (BBA 2010), Jérémy Paris (BBA student) and Alix Sicaud (BBA 2012). Individually, Xavier Ducharme, Benjamin Achache and Vincent Morency-Laplante took first, second and third places, respectively.
Organized by the Société de relations d'affaires (SRA), the simulation is designed to recreate trading in a financial market. This year’s contestants had to manage a $1 million portfolio of fictitious securities.
Congratulations to everyone!
