CHICAGO, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- On September 22nd, Peeptrade officially launched out of its beta phase with a new program aimed at students and app updates for iOS and Android. The program, called the Peeptrade Investment Challenge, officially starts on October 3rd. It enables people to see how investment clubs from top universities would invest in different assets and manage a real portfolio.
The program allows students to gain actual investment and risk management experience by managing a $10,000 portfolio funded by Peeptrade. There will be an event on December 3rd in Chicago, where teams will present final results and defend their investments in front of a panel of experts. The competing teams include: the University of Chicago, Princeton University, London Business School, MIT Investment Management Club, Dartmouth College, Georgetown University, Indiana University, University of North Carolina, and INSEAD.
The investment clubs will set a monthly subscription price on their profiles, charging a fee to users who want to see their portfolios and trading activity. These proceeds will be donated to a charity of the student's' choice. "Our goal with the Investment Challenge is to give students real world investing experience and to give back to the community," said Peeptrade founder Juan Mendoza. "
Peeptrade also announced major updates to its mobile applications. The updates include changes to the user interface and news feed. On the application, news is now broken into three categories depending on urgency and importance. One of these categories is only available to investors who upload their portfolios. In this section, investors receive portfolio-specific breaking news updates that appear on their dashboard. Investors also receive notifications when their securities move significantly day-to-day. Staying up to date on the markets has never been easier!
