ETF Global Announces Registration for Spring ETF Portfolio Challenge

ETF Research Firm Invites College Students to Participate in
Educational Investment Challenge

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–We are pleased to announce that registration for the Spring
2016 ETF Global® Portfolio Challenge
is open as of Monday,
November 16th!

With undergraduate and graduate students from four continents competing
in the inaugural investment challenge this past fall, the ETF Global
Portfolio Challenge now offers a streamlined registration process and
increased rebalancing opportunities!

ETF Global has established a near-term goal of one million participants
in 2018. Given young investors’ mounting interest in ETFs coupled with
ETF Global’s track record of achieving scale in its initiatives, this
goal certainly seems attainable – who knows how many participants they
can reach in the long term!

Reginald Browne, Senior Managing Director of Cantor Fitzgerald’s ETF
Group and a founding Sponsor of the ETF Global Portfolio Challenge
stated that, “ETFs are poised to become a dominant investment vehicle
for emerging investors. It is critical, therefore, to ensure that future
investors have the knowledge to invest in ETFs and achieve their
financial goals. ETF Global understands this. Their portfolio challenge
is an interactive way to help familiarize collegians with ETFs and
instill in them investment and portfolio management skills that will
benefit them far beyond the classroom.”

Additionally, Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS), the award-winning
data research platform and business intelligence tool from the Wharton
School of the University of Pennsylvania, immediately saw the educative
value of the ETF Portfolio Challenge. “Most students lack a basic
understanding of investing in general,” said Robert Zarazowski, Managing
Director of WRDS, “The ETF Portfolio Challenge is an innovative way of
extending investment and ETF education into the classroom. We are
thrilled to promote this effort to educate the next generations of
investors about investing and ETFs.”

Registration for the spring 2016 semester is open and will close
on Friday, February 12th. For more information about the
