We are excited to bring you the last event of our Finance 101 Series this year:

Apr. 25: “Capital Markets 101” – Join a market-making game with Neil Shenai, former trader of Citigroup. Participants make markets based off of the expected value of cards, without knowledge about what others are holding. Whether you are interested in sales and trading or planning to make your own stock investments, come play the game and gain hands-on experience in trading! Friday, 3:00pm. Nitze 517. A laptop is required to participate in the game. Please RSVP as location may be changed.

We look forward to seeing you then!
