Summary

The BMO Financial Group Finance Research and Trading Lab is pleased to present our 10th High School Market Simulation Challenge. The Rotman FRT-Lab is a state-of-the-art facility at the Rotman School of Management that contributes to the integration of theory and practice by running interactive simulation-based learning sessions and providing students with real-time access to financial resources and databases.

The Rotman Finance Lab hosts the annual Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC), a 3-day simulated market challenge featuring 50 competing universities from around the world. RITC features the RIT Market Simulator and associated RIT Decision Cases. The competition cases provide an opportunity for participants to develop and test their real-time trading, investing and risk management skills while competing with top students from around the world.

The Event

The High School Market Simulation Challenge provides exceptional high school students with an introduction to the field of finance and an opportunity to learn through simulated business scenarios. Students will participate in a morning workshop designed to introduce them to financial markets and the RIT Market Simulator platform, then in the afternoon they will have the opportunity to demonstrate their newly learned skills through a Market Simulation Challenge using the RIT Market Simulator. No prior preparation is necessary for this challenge, and all required resources will be provided before and during the competition.

This event is FREE

Teams must be comprised of exactly two members from the same school. A maximum of two teams per school may register for the in-person event. Teams that register without exactly two members will have their registration cancelled after the deadline. All registrants must be in Grade 12.
