ETF Global Portfolio Challenge

“Worldwide platform dedicated to educating the next generations of investors and investment professionals” 

The ETF Global Portfolio Challenge is a web-based simulated investment challenge designed to serve as a fun and educational tool intended to help educate students about investing in Exchange-Traded-Products.

Players will attempt to pick the top-performing portfolios of ETFs. Each participant will compete on the investment performance of their respective virtual portfolio.

The ETF Global Portfolio Challenge takes place semi-annually. The top 5 winners from each contest will be recognized in a variety of ways including on our site at, on this site, and in-person at the leading ETF industry conference, The ETP Forum held in New York City by The Expert Series.
