The top 5 teams out of a total of 93 teams from 18 countries will present live their proposals to this year's innovative case in front of Chief Investment Officers and other high-level executives from some of the world's largest institutional asset managers. They will be competing for C$50,000 in cash prizes, and their solutions will form the basis for how investment managers around the world can build socially equitable, yet profitable portfolios in the midst of the kind of rising geopolitical and socio-economic tensions we see today.
The fourth edition of the McGill International Portfolio Challenge (MIPC) focuses on how large institutional asset managers can address rising protectionism and social inequalities through innovative portfolio strategies. The case focuses on a fictional British sovereign wealth fund set up in the midst of Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund has a unique triple mandate to support British economic independence and alleviate social inequalities while simultaneously achieving required returns.
