PRMIA Announces 2020 Risk Management Challenge International Finalists

Congratulations to the PRMIA Risk Management Challenge regional winners who will advance to the international finals on April 20, 2020. The final round event will be conducted virtually and will include career development panel discussions and presentations by the two finalist teams before the judges select the 2020 winner.

Fifty-eight teams representing a total of 219 students competed in this year's Challenge. Nine PRMIA chapters hosted regional round events worldwide to narrow down the field to 12 finalist teams. We would like to recognize the tremendous dedication demonstrated by all of the teams and volunteers to persevere in this year's Challenge despite the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This year's competition was fully virtual to ensure its continuity. 

Student teams have diagnosed risk management issues with Long Term Capital Management and tried to provide constructive solutions in improving the risk governance, model risk, and stress testing frameworks for the fund. Students also created profitable out-of-sample pair trading strategies using the MATLAB product suite, which simulated trades of the fund.
