PRMIA Announces the 2019 Regional Risk Management Challenge Winners

Congratulations to the PRMIA Risk Management Challenge regional winners who will advance to the International Risk Management Challenge hosted in Montreal by PSP Investments. 

Eighty-five teams comprised of 340 Students were given four weeks to model Cash Flows at Risk (CFaR) for a portfolio of electricity power plants, based on natural gas prices, temperatures and electricity prices. Students were guided to build their own Machine Learning model on the MATLAB platform. Aside from the MATLAB challenge, students had to analyze the operations of United Grain Growers, a company that was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Each team prepared executive summaries and presentations which they presented to a team of financial industry veteran judges over the past week in global regional Risk Management Challenges. Regional rounds took place in nine locations spanning over North America, Europe and Africa. 
 
This event was made possible through the generous support of our International Sponsor, MathWorks, and our regional sponsors, Royal Bank of Canada and Scotiabank.
