A team of Math Business and Accounting students competed in the 17th edition of the Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) in Toronto during February 20-22, 2020. Over 50 teams from different Universities throughout the world participated in this trading competition, currently the world’s largest such competition. Teams participated in various activities including electronic and outcry trading cases, seminars with industry practitioners, and social events with their fellow competitors from around the world.
Although Waterloo team did not make it to the top 10 in this year’s competition, the event was highly useful and lessons learned will be passed onto next year’s team members for better preparation. Wishing best of luck to this year’s team members wherever their next adventures take them.
Special thanks goes to team coach Jimmy Fang and Nancy Sang for their guidance and advice.
