The competition involved participants investing their capital into various companies, commodities, mutual funds and fixed deposits after analyzing news and rumors presented as well as deducing the market demand. The event, which got an overwhelming response ended with Hans Raj College emerging as the winners. During the course of the fest, prizes worth more than 1.5 lakh rupees as well as merchandise were distributed among the winners.

Filler events included lectures on changing trends in finance and uses of finance in daily life.  People were kept entertained by fun contests including The Price is Right with a FinWiz twist where participants had to approximate the cost of each item presented to them using their general knowledge, financial ability and the good old tukka.

“We decided to carry forward a 20 year old tradition and made FinWiz 2015 a mega scale event”, Dr. Neeraj Kumar Sehrawat, the Teacher Coordinator of the Finance Society of the college said. The fest was, no doubt, a success with the chief guests and participants complimenting the student committee for holding a one of a kind event in DU.
