Webinar : Investing in the stock market: course 101

Thursday 10 Feb 2022
From 7PM To 8PM

As part of the collaboration between BANQ and CIRANO, we offered a co-organized event on investing in the stock market on February 10, 2022.

In this talk for beginners, our expert and director of the Bourstad project Paul Bourget explained the basics of investing in the stock market to introduce you to the world of finance and portfolio management.

He also presented the 2022 Bourstad challenge, an online contest (www.bourstad.ca) open to all, whose objective is to manage a virtual portfolio of $200,000 and invest this amount by choosing securities from a selection of more than 600 real stocks listed on North American stock markets.
