Students worked weekly with Quantitivate Analysts from GEODE’s Research Team to evaluate banking industry-specific metrics. They used these metrics to help predict future stock returns. As part of the project, students tested a set of bank-specific metrics and then created models to help improve bank efficiency and profitability based on different market conditions. The project was supervised by Professor Ying Becker and the students’ final presentation was viewed by over 15 members of GEODE’s team, including senior portfolio managers, analysts, and researchers.
