Experts to share outlooks with students at ENGAGE investment conference at Cobo
Wayne State University will be the hosting what is being billed as the largest student investment conference in the world this spring at Cobo Center. The two-day ENGAGE International Investment Education Symposium on March 26-27 will bring together students, professors and investment professionals from around North America. Shannon Peterson, director of media relations for Troy-based Mainstay Capital Management LLC, the presenting sponsor of the event, said up to 2,000 students and investment professionals are expected to attend. "We bring in professionals – big names like past Fed presidents, leaders in the industry, CIOs, economics, chief investment officers – but the audience is made up primarily of students and other professionals," she said. "It is focused on the students." Experts will share their economic, alternative investment, international market and stock outlooks. There will also be a college student investment portfolio competition with cash prizes. High school student scholarships, details of which are being finalized, will also be offered. CNBC, the event’s official broadcaster, will broadcast live from Cobo during the event.
