Simulation Overview

The Portfolio Management Simulation uses real-time market data, providing an accurate reflection of the fast-paced environment of fund management and asset allocation.

Students manage asset diversification, mean-variance optimization, and market analysis to make informed investment decisions.

This multiplayer simulation encourages critical thinking and emphasizes financial literacy, strategic investment, and risk management. Students are assessed based on the Sharpe Ratio they achieve.
