AIS INVESTMENT CLUB FIRST IN STATE IN SIFMA STOCK MARKET GAME
Out of 3,296 teams in Georgia, the AIS Investment Club came first in State in the SIFMA Stock Market Game, finishing 167.49% above the S&P 500. The winning team came first out of 60 in the region, with our other two teams coming in 4th Place GA State (2nd of 60 in region) and 13th Place GA State (4th of 60 in region).
The AIS Investment Club focuses on responsible management, limiting taxes, understanding macro & micro economics, current events and more. The Stock Market Game also provides students with a safe place to learn about market risk using $100,000 in fake money. Students can borrow up to 50% of their equity to “leverage margin” and invest on loan. Teams invest through the SIFMA Stock Market Game portal and all stocks are updated at the end of the day to ‘price to market’. This year the students took full advantage of learning how to ‘short the market’ with the winning taking home $253,986.89.
