McGill International Portfolio Challenge
The McGill International Portfolio Challenge (MIPC) is the pioneer of case competitions that target pensions, innovative portfolio design, and institutional asset management.
The fifth edition of the McGill International Portfolio Challenge (MIPC), under the guidance of Professor Sebastien Betermier, focuses on how long-term asset managers can find ways to sustainably generate returns while minimizing risks in the current environment of ultra-low bond yields. We will focus on the ongoing pension reform in the Netherlands and study the portfolio design of a (fictional) newly launched collective defined contribution plan (CDC) that provides new possibilities for workers and pensioners to share risks.
McGill Case Competition Association
The McGill Case Competition Association (MCCA) was formed with the mission of hosting a world-class professional case competition at McGill, including the Desautels Graduate Management Challenge. The MCCA’s secondary mandate is to encourage participation in external case competitions, and promote competitions hosted by firms or other schools.
