Our Master's in Asset Management is a work-study programme. All the members of this group do their work-study in the most prestigious management companies in Paris. This challenge has allowed us to put into practice the elements we learn in class and during our apprenticeship.
Our presence on the podium at each ranking is due to our activity on the platform. We have taken care to inform our investors on a weekly basis about: economic news, news about the companies in which we are invested, as well as the various strategic operations carried out on the fund.
It was an enriching experience because it developed our creativity. In addition, each video raised a fear of our investors on a different topic which allowed us to deepen them.
To build our portfolio, we combined a top-down approach with a bottom-up approach. The lines were then monitored on a weekly basis during our management meetings. We set up a tool that allowed us to monitor the different aspects of our portfolio (sector allocation, geographical allocation, ESG rating of the portfolio, etc.),
We really enjoyed the pitches to the jury. To our knowledge, this is the only competition that includes the possibility of raising funds from investors. We found this to be a very formative and rewarding element.
In terms of flops, we did not understand the scoring. A very large part of the points were awarded to elements external to "management". Moreover, we were surprised that winning presentations (pitch/video) was not taken into account in the ranking.
We have only positive memories of this challenge which put us in the real conditions of an investment fund. It was a very formative experience for us because the members of this club aim to work in the field of asset management and this challenge offered us total immersion.
