Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Contest Background?
Sarhan Capital is a boutique investment firm that is constantly looking for talent (people and ideas). Since the early 2000’s, Sarhan Capital has run this contest privately with a much smaller prize. Some of the best trading ideas come from the contest and we are always looking for great ideas. In 2013, the firm decided to make the contest public (via social media) and we will see what ideas emerge.
