Last week, four Tippie College of Business students traveled to the Big Apple and represented the Krause Fund at the Global Asset Management Education (GAME) conference sponsored by Quinnipiac University. Raghav Anantharaju, Ryan Ebeling, Cody Kadolph, and Yang Jing participated in the three-day conference (Mar. 29-31) held in New York City. Their experience was made possible by generous support from Union Pacific, a long-time supporter of the Krause Fund program.
The GAME Forum is one of the largest student-managed investment fund conferences in the world, with more than 1,000 participating students from schools around the globe. The opening day of the conference features prominent keynote speakers from the investment profession discussing economics, market strategy, investment research, regulation, and portfolio management. Ryan Ebeling was selected by the conference to serve as one of the panelists asking questions for the economics portion of the program. Day 2 of the conference provides break-out sessions, where participants can attend individual small-group sessions led by investment professionals and tailored to their educational interests. The conference concludes on Day 3 with a series of sessions oriented toward career development.
Of course, no trip to NYC would be complete without a visit to lower Manhattan for a photo with the Wall Street bull and the New York Stock Exchange.
