Dear friends!

We are proud to announce a unique international trading championship for students – IFSA Traders’ Cup organized in Russia by NES Banking & Finance Society and Keystone, two biggest non-commercial student clubs in Russia for those interested in finance!

IFSA Traders’ Cup is organized in partnership with International Finance Student Association (IFSA), the biggest association of finance student clubs in the world. Our main sponsor for the event is Sberbank CIB, investment banking division of the largest bank in Russia.

The championship starts on February 7th and ends on March 6th, the registration for event closes on February 12th. More than 100 teams have already joined the Cup!

Create your own portfolio starting with $100 000 and show your investment skills by trading on the US market! For this championship we use a platform called Marketwatch, based on the real market information online which is advanced yet clear and comprehensible even for beginners.

Build a team of 2-6 people and register in the form to compete with the best students from more than 14 countries on 5 continents! You can find all the regulations here, including the instructions on how the winners will be determined, ratings and technical details of trading during the championship. Each team will get a greeting letter, instructions on the registration process and password for joining the Cup before 22:00 on February 12th.

Winners of the Cup will get noticed by the industry professional on both local and global level! The winning team of the Traders’ Cup will be mentored by the IFSA for an internship or junior position, with their profiles exposed to numerous recruiters and financial institutes. Five best teams on the global level will enjoy a free three-month digital subscription to the Wall Street Journal.

We also have several prizes specifically for Russian teams. Three best teams in the country will be fast-tracked to the final-round interview for “Head Start@ Sberbank CIB” internship, and the Top-5 teams will get a one-year-long subscription to Vedomosti and books devoted to finance and trading.
