In 2022, the Xavier’s Finance Community conducted multiple tasks, including organizing speaker sessions, conducting events, and doing research and drafting publications. In total, the members of the Xavier’s Finance Community wrote a total of 63 articles, including 4 Equity Research Reports. We have tried to live up to our motto, that is to spread knowledge about finance amongst the students and spread general awareness about the niche. We have tried to allow the students to get an opportunity to experience the financial world through various events. The first event we organized was named Ace-the-case, and this event was solely related to the corporate litigation arena. Each participant was given a case and they had to fight the case to qualify, post which they were individually put up for stress interviews and legal debates.
The second event was named monopolise, where the participants were allotted an economy and industry via auction and then were required to build their startups. The best of all startups were called to the Finance Lab, where they pitched their startups and made investments in other startups based on the pitch and performance updates. A cumulative score of all rounds helped us in deciding the best startup for the event.
The third and last event we organized this year was named the Game of Trades 2.0. This was the second edition of our proprietary Stock Market simulation, which is operated through Google Sheets, which was made by the members of the Xavier’s Finance Community from scratch. We executed more than 20000 trade orders for 50 companies from 400 teams who took part in the event. The final value of each portfolio was evaluated, and the top 10 highest net worth portfolios were then called to the Finance Lab, wherein they formed a merger with the other finalists and pitched their joint venture for investments. Based on the overall performance in trading as well as the merger and the pitch, the winners were decided and declared.
Apart from the above, we also organized a speaker session in association with Edroit Education, wherein the directors of the said organization met the students and consulted them about the possible streams of career in the world of finance.
With these there was an additional initiative, which was based on the first season of a television show, named Shark Tank India, wherein startups pitch
With these there was an additional initiative, which was based on the first season of a television show, named Shark Tank India, wherein startups pitch their companies to Angel Investors. We analyzed each pitch individually and presented our readers with an overall view of the pitches.
Our main motto being “Spreading Financial Knowledge”, we have tried our level best to help the students of the college to gain knowledge about the world of finance and also experience the practicalities of the said niche. We hope to do much more in the coming years!
