Hear an interview with our winners:

First-Year Business Student Wins Big

Matthew Tarka knew his first year as a finance major at Xavier would be a challenge. But when an opportunity came up to enter an international stock portfolio challenge, he thought, why not? And in a twist that’s typical of the Xavier experience, this story begins not in a classroom but during Club Day on the Yard.

Business Students Make History in Investment Challenge

This spring, five St. John Fisher College students made history when they became the first school to claim all five winning spots in the 2017 ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge. Ethan O’Donnell, Cole Smith, Phat Huynh, Carlin Lydon, and John Lehsten—all members of the Class of 2018—took the top spots in the 10-week investment competition.

Winner’s Spotlight: Mathew Tarka

Matthew Tarka, a sophomore at Xavier University, stands out when it comes to contestants in the ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge. He is the only student to ever finish in the top 25 in all three of our challenges, finishing 5th in our most recent Fall 2016 ETF Portfolio Challenge and placing 1st in our inaugural Fall 2015 contest.

Winner’s Spotlight: Wyatt Smith

Wyatt Smith is a student at the University of Central Florida who will be graduating in 2017. He has been a prominent player in the ETF Global Portfolio Challenge since its inception but this past semester he was a standout as he placed 1st in our highest played competition to date!
