Adirondack Cup


Adirondack Funds operates the Adirondack Cup, an initiative through which college and graduate students from participating universities throughout New York and New England can create their own hypothetical small cap portfolio for six months. At the end of this time, the portfolio with the best return will win The Adirondack Cup.

What is the benefit for students?

The goal of this competition is to give real life experience for economics and finance students interested in pursuing a career in financial services. The students will get practical experience in Adirondack’s core beliefs – research, patience and independent thinking. Students will also get a significant head start interacting with Adirondack’s network of financial clients and college alums who will be following the competition closely, rooting on their alma mater.

What happens at the end of the competition?
