Michael Hartigan, Fordham University, Wins Institutional Investor's 2013-2014 All-America Student Analyst Competition

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Institutional Investor, one of the world's foremost media brands, announces that Michael Hartigan, an MBA student at Fordham University's Graduate School of Business, has won the 2013-2014 All-America Student Analyst Competition.

The winning undergraduate is Joel Cohen from the University of Cincinnati, while the leading school is Fordham University, which has nine students in the top 100. Robert Fuest is the faculty adviser at Fordham University.

In its second year, the All-America Student Analyst Competition pitted undergraduate and graduate students from all over the U.S. against one another in the hunt for investment returns using a professional-style trading engine. More than 2,100 students from 81 schools participated in the competition, which is supported by ALPHASEAL®, a software platform developed by Stamford, Connecticut-based Mark My Media. The platform measures the daily performance of participants' portfolios, calculating six investment factors -- net benchmark outperformance, volatility, balance sheet impact, net exposure impact, long alpha and short alpha -- employing the Russell 3000 Index as its benchmark. Three times as many students competed than did in the inaugural year, with more than double the number of participating schools.

The results suggest that it's not easy to beat the market. Not many -- only 345 participants, or 16 percent -- outperformed the Russell 3000 benchmark, which gained around 9.3 percent over the course of the competition.
