Investment Competition

The Investment Competition is the core activity of B&R Beurs. Members of the society collaborate in investment groups and invest with real money. Each week, return and risk ratios are calculated and reported. Volatility is calculated as standard deviation of the weekly returns. The group with the highest risk adjusted return at the end of the academic year wins the trophy.

Each group is registered as an association at the chamber of commerce, has a chairman and treasurer, and has its own trading bank account. Each group is independent, and has their own rules and specifications. Certain groups accept only Dutch students, others work in English. The usual buy-in lays between €100 and €800, but can vary up to €2.500 per person. Groups manage their own money and investments autonomously but are monitored by the board. Groups usually consist out of 10 to 20 members. They meet usually once a week or every two weeks, and organize diverse social events for themselves, such as dinners or golf trips. This is not only a great way to learn about investing, but also to make new friends!

The competition usually starts in October and ends at the beginning of July. Members can either join an existing group or create their own investment group with like-minded members. Investment groups can participate in the Investment Competition with different investment strategies and with different levels of risk-aversion. The Investment Competition will provide you with experience and knowledge of investing that you cannot get anywhere else.
