University of Toronto Finance Competition

Join us on November 12, 2019 at the Radisson Admiral Hotel on the Toronto Harbourfront for Investment Society's annual flagship event, the University of Toronto Finance Conference! Participants will compete in teams of 2-3 and present to a panel of judges a solution to a business case based on real-world challenges in the finance industry. The first round of the competition will be a stock pitch round. Competitors will be given a stock & tasked with creating a pitch for it (buy or don't buy). In the second round, competitors will be given a case which they have to analyze and create a solution for. Both rounds will involve presentations to judges.

In the networking portion we will invite professionals with experiences in Investment Banking, Sales and Trading, Asset Management, and other finance fields to meet our delegates and share their knowledge and expertise. Students will have the opportunity to listen to a keynote speaker. In the past, we have had representatives from CIBC, Scotiabank, Deloitte, and other amazing companies!

Get your tickets soon! Early bird sales end on October 14th.

Trading Competition

The annual UTSC Trading Competition is a flagship event hosted jointly by The BRIDGE and Investment Society. This competition is open to current UTSC students only and each team must have 3 members. This is a professional business competition, so participants are expected to dress in business formal attire. After a long day of trading, be ready to mix and mingle with our industry guests, many of whom are currently working as Bay Street traders. This is an excellent chance to learn more about the industry, and even make a connection that could change your life!

Breaking into Bay Street

The workshop will cover topics such as an overview of a Private Equity firm, the job of an Investment Associate and an Intern Analyst and steps a junior student should take to enter the industry. The interactive activity will be constructing a simple LBO model in Excel, followed by an analysis of returns and multiples. The session will end with an open Q&A. Dinner will be provided!

The goal of this event would be to increase the awareness of Private Equity amongst UTSC students with the partnership of CVCA, provide a pathway for students to start their journeys into Private Equity, Investment Banking and Venture Capital.
