Emerging Markets Club

Escrito el 12 diciembre 2007 por Alumni en Business Networking

IMBA08 student Alistair Clark has proposed a new initiative: the Emerging Markets Club. The mission statement he is proposing is posted below. If you would like to join the club, please fill out the Registration Form available at Campus Online.
Mission statement:
To educate and allow discussion regarding emerging markets FROM A FINANCIAL INVESTMENT PERSPECTIVE (fixed income, natural resources, industry, and real estate acquisition) amongst faculty, IE students, visiting professionals and anyone else related to the topic or the school who participates in meetings in a constructive fashion. The emphasized, but not exclusive, countries to be discussed are BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China). Please note that this is not a club for social awareness or one that emphasizes the environmental concerns for development in emerging markets; while this is an important topic, it is a different subject for another club like NetImpact.¨

1 Million € of virtual money per team, 22 teams, competing in real time for 8 weeks, with access to invest in Global Stocks, Currencies, Commodities, Derivatives and just about everything else there is to invest in.
The Stocktrack stock market simulator competition is a mandatory game played by those students enrolled in the courses of Portfolio Management, taught by Professors Juan Pedro Gómez (in English) and Laura Nuñez (in Spanish). The game was also open to the IE Finance Club Members.
We had heard that cash is king. However, after listening to the strategies of the top 3, we found out that information is king! Gardenia Fresneda Da Silva (MBA 07), Ricardo Degollado (EXCHANGE STUDENT) and Miroslav Toshkin (IMBA 07) were the contenders presenting their teams’ strategies.
Ricardo’s team had made some money on investments in stocks and then lost it all when he moved his focus to commodities and invested in gold and oil. This together with his team’s investments in T-Bills put him on a pedestal in the Sharpe ratio rankings at a whopping ratio of 1.94. Ricardo and team kept a close watch on the news throughout the 8 weeks, meticulously checking the movements of their portfolio.
Gardenia, who belonged to the group brokered by Nicolás Tobón (MBA 07), was the top performer by absolute returns until week 7, after which Miroslav made some wise and high risk high return investments, putting him in first place for absolute returns. Gardenia mentioned that they too, like Ricardo, started with investments in stocks but moved to oil. There was no looking back after week 5, during which her team was close to 15% returns, leaving the closest contender at a mere 7%. Gardenia kept watching out for oil movements, $ exchange rates and the contemporary financial crises. She then diversified and gained brownie points for her team.

Miroslav, the “Black knight” of the competition, invested in ETFs, and since he had experience in agriculture, he kept track of the soya bean market and invested a good amount of his portfolio at the right time, coming out as the current winner at a 10.45% absolute return. – Bravo, Miroslav!
Comments by Finance Club members:
Samarth Sheth: Initially the # 1 was someone whose strategy was to be highly leveraged; come week 4 and this portfolio was at a -55%. The positions were risky and unhedged. Huge leverage landed them up at the bottom of the pyramid. Learning for me – “Greed is good” (Wall Street – the movie) however a hedged one is better!
Joaquín Ruiz: The Portfolio Management Competition is another success event of the Finance Club and coordinated/sponsored by Instituto de Empresa and his Chair of Finance Prof. Juan Pedro Gómez. Students have had the chance to discover the intricacies of investing in all types of financial securities and compete among each other in real time basis.
Congratulations to the top 3 teams, and especially to Miroslav´s team!

This year, IE’s crew was sponsored by Ambilamp Association for recycling and conservation of the natural environment, and fought hard in a regatta with strong winds, rough seas and fierce competition.
At the end of September, the fourth edition of the MBA’s Cup regatta took place in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy as in previous years. This event, which has become a classic, includes the participation of 21 of the world’s most important Business Schools and over 400 of their students.

The IE crew -formed by IMBA05 Johannes Tinsobin (Austria), Pablo Divasson (Spain), Carlos Vázquez (Spain), IMBA06 Karim Kreaa (Syria), Laura Fernández (Argentina), Wim Zwaenepoel (Belgium), Alberto Ordiales (Mexico)and IMBA07 Nicolas Dilger (Germany)- finished the first day’s sailing in an extraordinary 2nd place position, but due to an unfortunate incident with the Rotterdam BS yacht, ended up in 11th position by the event’s end.
The MBA’s Cup is a unique opportunity for business students, brought together by their passion for sailing, to make contacts and to exchange ideas amongst themselves, with business leaders and with those who push forward major changes at the international level. In today’s world, sustainability is one of the most important issues in business, and for this it is especially pertinent that our sponsor this year was AMBILAMP, a non profit-making company, whose aim is to promote the protection of the natural environment, through the creation of an integrated management system for the treatment of wastes produced by used lamp-bulbs.
IE is ranked amongst the world’s top 10 business schools and comes Europe’s 1st in the sustainability ranking published by The Aspen Institute. This ranking evaluates the integration of social and environment issues in the curricula of MBA programs. The link between Ambilamp and IE is Juan Carlos Enrique Moreno, General Manager of Ambilamp and alumnus of IE’s Executive MBA program (1990).
