The Investment and Finance Cell, Department of Commerce, Hans Raj College organised Stock Guru – a freshers’ inter-college mock stock competition on 9th October 2015. The competition was the first of its kind organised in Delhi University for the ongoing academic year. It witnessed a footfall of over 400 participants, who represented colleges from all over Delhi.
The competition comprised of two main rounds – the prelims and the finals, which were further divided into two rounds each. The event turned out to be a learning and a highly enriching experience for first-year students, who were acquainted with the rudiments of stock markets and portfolio management. The participants showed keen interest in learning new concepts; and with the simulation being skilfully designed and implemented by the organisers, they got to know about various aspects of finance. After two intensely occupying rounds, the results were declared, with the prize money and goodies from Worlds of Wonder being distributed on the spot.
The winners were as follows: First position – Aarush Jain and Rohan Bhatia from SSCBS; First runner-up: Sankalp Vohra from Sri Venkateswara College; and Second runner-up: Gagandeep Singh from SGGSCC.
On the whole, the competition was effective in giving the students an insight into the nitty gritties of the finance world.
