The 9th annual Invest For Kids Chicago investment conference was held on Friday, November 3, 2017, at the Harris Theater. Dr. David Krause, AIM program director, and Dr. Joe Wall, Accounting professor, and Bill Walker, Adjunct Instructor of Finance, took 18 students to Chicago for the event.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the event and are thankful that Balyasny Asset Management again hosted their admission to the event and the pre-conference university scholars conference at the University Club, featuring a session with Ariel Investments CEO, John Roberts. See a previous blog posting for more background on the conference. Last year's conference picks returned 22.9% in an equal-weighted portfolio over the past year.
