Mohit Verma ’12 Wins Worldwide Investing Contest

Mohit Verma ’12 Wins Worldwide Investing Contest

Mohit Verma, a double major in Information Systems and Applied Mathematics and Statistics, was the winner of the top prize’s “University Challenge,” a wolrldwide virtual investing competition that that ended in December. Mohit was awarded $10,000 for graduate school and an eight-week internship with Amplified Trading, a hedge fund in London, after he edged out 10,000 other active traders remaining in the one-month competition.

“There were 25 or 30,000 participants at the beginning,” says Mohit, who graduated in December. “They were from universities all around the world. It was a very intense competition, very high-pressure.”

…If he goes with Citigroup, an investment bank, Mohit a will be working on the technology trading site. And after that? He shrugs and says he’s not worried. Meanwhile, he’s enjoying his status as TopTrader’s top university trader, bar none.





‘I worked hard for this,” he admits. ‘It feels really good.”
