Following an invitation from ESCP Europe, London, three teams from Regent’s University London will battle it out for top spot in the Energy Trading Competition 2018.
A financial trading simulation held on the ESCP Europe campus on February 22 and 23, the competition, aimed at MSc-level students with a competency in analysing and trading in energy markets, will encompass two full days of comprehensive market analysis and trading.
Accompanied by Dr Elias Boukrami, Head of Programmes for MSc Oil and Gas and MSc Finance, Regent's students will compete against the UK’s top universities, including LSE, LBS, Imperial College, and the University of Oxford, amongst others.
The event will be attended also by top city recruiters and executives from the world’s leading energy trading firms. The winning team will have the opportunity to interview with a leading energy trading firm.
The fast-paced simulation will provide students with a range of professional tools and hedging strategies at their dispense to take on the dynamic market. The students look confident entering into the competition, following a booster session with Amplify Trading, led by William de Lucy, MD.
