The Belmont Equity Trading Club recently participated in the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Investment Challenge where 24 universities compete to defend their discipline, positions and returns to the TVA executives.
The Belmont Equity Trading Club provides students with hands-on experience in financial asset management by actively dealing with a real stock portfolio for the TVA. The TVA has the students in the club buy and sell stocks based on their own analysis and consensus of the group. For last year’s investment portfolio, the club managed $750,000+ and had a return of 24.13 percent. The team’ returns from 2018-2020 were 9.38, 16.99, and 28.96 percent, respectively.
Their focus is to help members develop a disciplined and systematic approach to evaluating the markets and build their fundamental and technical analytical skills, as well as continue to outperform the market (S&P 500) in portfolio performance.
The Belmont Equity Trading Club helps students design long-term investment strategies by selecting investments under the guidance of faculty members and within investment guidelines established by the TVA.
