Economics Honours students win Schroders awards

Posted by Melt van Schoor on 2016-10-06

As part of a collaboration between Schroders, a London-based asset management company, and the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Stellenbosch University, ten awards were made recently for essays in finance and economics. The winners, who received R20 000, included two of our Honours students, Rebecca Selkirk (front, second from right on above photo) and Johann Pfitzinger (left). Johann's essay was awarded the highest mark, 90%.

Dr Nico Marais of Schroders, an alumnus of our department, played a pivotal part in the collaboration agreement. More details about the competition is available here, and see also this article on the university's news blog for more general details on the collaboration initative.
