IMIFC is open to undergraduate and graduate students from UTM. This competition is part of Rotman Portfolio Management Competition (RPMC), in which teams across Canadian Universities manage an investment portfolio with securities listed and traded in actual markets using Rotman Portfolio Manager (RPM). Students will participate in teams of up to three and each team will start with an initial cash allocation of CAD $1 million at day 1. Each team’s objective is to generate highest risk-adjusted returns by the end of the competition measured by the Sharpe Ratio. Participants may also short-sell any securities and trade on margin (e.g. leverage allowed). After the trading period, top-performing teams are invited to present their strategies and performance results at the closing ceremony.
