Today marks the kick off of the first annual Canada Trust Investment Challenge at Western.
The investment challenge was designed by Richard Ivey School of Business students Jodi Kovitz and Carmyn Aleshka, in an attempt to raise awareness about investing and multiple sclerosis.
The challenge, which runs until Nov. 22, involves investing $100,000 of play money into a portfolio of stocks. There will be a number of prizes available bi-weekly for students who have the highest portfolio and lowest portfolio, Kovitz explained.
