Kaggle: Using News to Predict Stock Movements

Can we use the content of news analytics to predict stock price performance? The ubiquity of data today enables investors at any scale to make better investment decisions. The challenge is ingesting and interpreting the data to determine which data is useful, finding the signal in this sea of information. Two Sigma is passionate about this challenge and is excited to share it with the Kaggle community.

Global Case Competition at Harvard

The Global Case Competition at Harvard is the world’s most prestigious student-organized case competition. This year’s competition is organized by the Harvard College European Business Group (EBG), and the International Finance Student Association (IFSA).

Their goal is to bring together the best students of economics and finance throughout the world, and to offer them fantastic opportunities: to meet like-minded students, world leading institutions, and renowned guests. For this third edition of the competition all participants will enjoy a meet and greet reception, networking in Boston, and two days of case solving at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, before ending the weekend with an amazing closing ceremony.

A digital copy of the case will be disbursed to all participants and can be completed from abroad.  The top 10 teams will be given the opportunity to make a short case presentation to a select panel of distinguished professors and industry professionals.  If a top 10 finalist is not able to come to Cambridge, MA for the live final competition then a video presentation will need to be submitted.

Sustainable Investing Challenge

Contestants must propose and defend a strategy that uses finance and investment tools rather than an operating enterprise to address an environmental or societal challenge. The competition is an opportunity to apply core finance principles to target the economic, social and environmental challenges that drive the field of sustainable investing. Pitches might focus on areas like water, energy, food, social mobility, climate change, education or healthcare, among others. Contestants are encouraged to apply the entire spectrum of investment tools, styles and asset classes.

Two-page prospectuses must be submitted in February. The prospectus should outline a unique sustainable investment strategy. Ten finalist teams will be announced in March. These teams will be flown to Hong Kong and will be provided with two nights of lodging, and are expected to present their proposal at the finals competition on April 12, 2019.
