Thirty-three schools from 19 countries across Europe have registered for the fourth Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) organized by Luiss Guido Carli University of Rome and supported by the Institute.

This one-day invitational online event allows teams of four students to participate in a mock market where they face simulation cases including commodities, equities, and bonds. It is designed to reward the participants’ ability to accurately price securities and formulate profitable, risk-adjusted trading strategies.

Its structure is similar to the very successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC), held annually in Toronto by the Rotman FRT-Lab of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, where 50 schools from around the world meet and compete in simulated markets.

The EIB, through the Institute has been cooperating with Luiss (Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali) in the fields of academic research, teaching and training since 2018. A STAREBEI research grant was signed in 2019 on “Changes in the European Financial Markets and the Financing of Non-Financial Firms”.
