Fin-S, The Finance Society of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College marked a remarkable year traced with knowledge sharing sessions, business finance discussions and brainstorming forums. The 2020 session was signed off by the successful and well appreciated flagship event of the society, FINANZA.

 

INDUCTION PROGRAMME (2nd – 7th September’19)

After an informative and interactive orientation for the new batch of students, the society kicked off with more than 100 students wanting to be a part of the society. This necessitated a rigorous selection procedure. While the first round tested aptitude of the students to act according to the situation through a corporate crisis, the other dealt with their basic knowledge of finance and competency to learn.

 

TRADER’S CUP (20th September’19)

 

After the recruitment of society members, they were exposed to the world of stock markets. Students were given stocks and their real time prices coupled with a plethora of news related to various sectors. They were supposed to deduce what impact would each news have on the stock prices and then trade accordingly. It gave them a real picture of how things happen in the stock market and developed an interest among them to learn and explore this new and interesting field.

KNOWLEDGE SHARING SESSIONS (October to February)

Trekking the path of "Together we grow", it became an umbrella organisation to learn new skills, boost your confidence and diversify your interests.

The knowledge sharing sessions ranged from a tech savvy world of MS-Excel, stock market trading, business research and graphic designing to embracing the practicalities of trading and case studies. Fin-S didn't leave any stone unturned.

 

1) From a single cell to a spreadsheet, the Excel sessions were patiently handled to escalate to an advance understanding of the essential tool of finance. Workbook assignments were shared, and crosschecked by the team to ensure complete learning.

 

2) The research and development vertical took charge of ensuring inculcation of in-depth understanding and analytical skills by teaching the students to understand company reports from scratch.  

 

3) The graphic designing sessions emphasized on techniques of photo editing and poster designing. It encouraged the students to put their thinking caps on and explore their creativity.

 

4) The uncertainties of stock market were introduced by the trading sessions conducted by the team. They included studying charts of companies, familiarising with trading platforms and picking the right stocks after analysing the charts.

 

Talk on Banking Industry (1st October’19)

 

Banking is an important part of the economy and being finance students it becomes all the more important to understand this industry. Keeping this in mind we collaborated with the leading private bank, HDFC Bank in order to understand from the best in the industry. Mr. Shirish, a senior executive with HDFC Bank was the guest speaker who gave students an insight into the industry and what type of career options it has to offer.

 

FINANZA 20 (20th February’20)

              

We are the team with the largest heart, best preparation, deepest passion, strongest togetherness, and a will to succeed!

This day of prosperity is ours!

Let's create and capture greatness!  

 

With this very thought, Fin-S, The Finance Club of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College organized its annual flagship event, FINANZA’20. It proved to be one of the most exuberant finance festivals of the year with five nerve racking events, four eminent speakers, seminars, two world class online platforms and one standup comedian. 

FINZINE 

The finance club launched the second edition of its annual finance magazine- Finzine..

Finzine consisted of articles related to pertinent business and economic happenings and interesting puzzles with contribution from the members of FinS.

 

 

 

THE PRELIMS 

There was a common prelim which was held for all the five events that took place in Finanza’20. This gave the participants a shot to take part in all the events as per their preference. The prelims included a quiz related to various aspects of business and economics.

 

THE PANEL DISCUSSION 

Here the participants got a chance to interact with the astute minds of the financial industry. Sahil Khanna (Youtuber, Intellectual Indies), Mukul malik (Youtuber, Asset Yogi), Kundan Kishore (Director, Equity Research Wealthian) and Smriti Tomar (CEO and Founder of Stack) were on the panel discussion, which was conducted by Rahul Jerath. The discussion proved to be very informative that gave a deeper understanding of the Indian financial system to the audience.

 

BLOOD DONATION CAMP

In collaboration with Rotary Club of Delhi Capitol, participants had a golden chance to do something for the people in need. They were given a chance to donate blood which proved the basic ideology of Fin-S to contribute in the welfare of the society. The chief guest Mr. Deepak Gupta graced this camp with his presence. 

 

EVENTS 

There were five events in total which tested financial acumen of the participants to the core:-

 

MONEY HEIST 

An event based on the concept of the popular TV show Money Heist, this event took the participants to another version of this show. They had to rob a bank and print as much currency as possible from a virtual minting machine. They also had to increase the printing rate which made the event more interesting and exciting.

MAFIA CITY

Mafia City took the participants to the city where mafias rule. This embarked a journey of richest trades of all times- guns, drugs, gambling and horse-betting. They acquired their area of expertise and multiplied their profits by becoming a true mafia of the virtual world. 

 

WORLD WAR 3

This event was based on the time of war. The participants bid on their favorite country according to the situations given, managed troops, security, etc. They deployed troops on other countries and handled them. The best warriors were declared on the basis of their management skills.

 

 

 

MILLIONS

Here the participants were given an experience on the live trading platform which functioned with the help of artificial intelligence. While most mock stock competitions rotate around the basic pen and paper old school events, MILLIONS- raised the benchmark and left participants wanting more from any subsequent DU competition. 

 

VIRTUAL SURVIVAL  

The event combined the best of Finance world with our shared love for animals, as it was based on portfolio management concept and at the same time creating a conscious awareness in the participants towards animals sensitization and the need for protecting them. Before the event, the volunteers from World Animal Protection took a session on working towards protecting wildlife.

 

The organising committee of all the events worked day and night to make the events worthwhile. And their continuous efforts in the right direction truly made an impact on the day of FINANZA’20.

 

THE STAND UP COMEDY

No event is complete without an entertaining evening! Rajat Chauhan, one of most beloved stand-up comedians of all times graced the event with his presence. The auditorium was jam packed to watch him perform live. He made everyone laugh to his sense of humour and relatable anecdotes. It wasn't just him but also AKANKSHA SHARMA, who came as a surprise element and entertained everyone through her jokes and mimicry.

 

The Event witnessed a high footfall of students from leading Delhi University colleges like
SRCC, Hansraj, Hindu, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce and other colleges
across Delhi-NCR. Participants had an opportunity to be acquainted with the rudiments of
stock markets and portfolio management where the sponsors like HDFC, Quantum, VLCC, The Education Tree, Houseitt among many others were in direct touch with the students. A highly positive feedback was received from the participants and they couldn’t wait for Finanza to come next year.

 

Finanza was an attempt from Fin-S’ desire to redefine the notion of DU college competitions. By resorting to digital events, Fin-S helped curb the excessive wastage of resources whilst providing the participants with an innovative take on society events. The participant feedback, coupled with the massive turnaround - Fin-S achieved its intended goals. The organizing committee has always been discontented with carrying on the status quo and has always been committed to innovation, to which Finanza was an ode.

 


CASE STUDY MEET (25th February’20)

Case Studies are an important medium of applying theoretical knowledge in the real world scenario. The case study interactions built the habit of seeing the problems as opportunities and trying different approaches to formulate a plan for the same. One such case study interaction was conducted by Ms. Aishwarya from Talerang institute of Career training. The students were made aware about concepts like constructing an issue tree used in the corporate world and guesstimates which is a widely used concept in cracking interviews.

JOSH – The inaugural event of THE ADVENTURE CLUB DDUC commenced on 18th September 2019, in the college sports ground lead by President Gaurav Nailwal, Girl head Vishakha and managed by entire working team under the guidance of the club convenor Dr. Arpita Sharma and Dr. Anil Kumar.

Fixtures were allotted a day prior to the event. It was BA Prog 1st year and PSCS 3rd year which made it to the finale.

KNOWLEDGE SHARING SESSIONS

 

Someone rightly said- “Money does not dictate your lifestyle. It’s what you do to get it and how you manage your finances that determines your lifestyle.”

 In this competitive world, where people burn the midnight oil to secure their future, it becomes crucial to understand how to manage our finances. The team of FinS- the Finance Society of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, shares the same philosophy. In order to develop the financial acumen of young minds, the society organised a number of knowledge sharing sessions throughout the year.

These sessions covered an array of topics like understanding the technicalities of the stock markets, contemplating the reasons behind the failure of business giants like Lehman Brothers, the occurrence of economic bubbles like the Dot com bubble and the Tulip mania, and analysing the ways in which companies like Enron fooled the entire world. The President of the society, Porush, taught them how to analyse share prices and manage their trades.

The interactive discussions greatly helped in building the knowledge bank of the participants, especially the first-year students who were amazed to know the actual working of the markets.

Overall, the knowledge sharing sessions proved to be a successful and creative way of interpreting and analysing complex information.

 

FINANZA’19 – Annual Finance Fiesta

 

Fin-S, the Finance Club of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, organised its annual finance fest on 19 February 2019. The inaugural ceremony began with the principal gracing the occasion in the auditorium.

Finzine-

The club launched its first annual finance magazine, which included a message from the principal and convenor.

The main body of the magazine, comprised of articles touching upon pertinent business and economic happenings, written by Fin-S members.

 

Events

There were five events in total which tested the financial acumen of the participants to the core.

 

1. 2008 REWIND- Recreating History

An event inspired by the financial crisis that shook the whole world. Participants had to prove their methodological decision-making skills and test their financial knowledge. Only the mental all-rounders, could prevail.

 

2. RISE OF AI (Live Trading Simulation)

A live trading platform which functioned on Artificial Intelligence. While most ‘mock stock’ competitions centre around basic applications of technology, RISE OF AI - upped the benchmark and left participants wanting more from any subsequent DU competition.

 

3. ALLUSION - The Finance Quiz

The Business and Finance Quiz which gave an opportunity to go up against the best. Participants were put through the rigor of four cognitively-onerous rounds. The presence of questions which required lateral thinking, made the competition even more fierce.

 

4. FIN CRICKET 3.0

A gripping IPL auction with thrilling twists where you have to show your ability in managing resources efficiently and handle a cricket team and all the tricky situations.

 

5. SCREAM AND STREAM

Scream and Stream involved building a business empire and maximizing your revenue. It involved guesstimates and bidding on an online platform. Participants’ ability to make sound decisions under pressure was pushed to the limit.

 

The FinCup

The college with the maximum points in all events combined was awarded the annual finance trophy, the Fin Cup, a trophy initiated for the first time in any Delhi University event.

 

Conclusion

 

 

The Event witnessed a high footfall of students from leading Delhi University colleges like SRCC, Shaheed Sukhdev, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce and other colleges across Delhi-NCR. Participants had an opportunity to be acquainted with the rudiments of stock markets and portfolio management where the sponsors like GuruQ, CIMA, LIC, NIC were in direct touch with the students. Very positive feedback was received from the participants and they couldn’t wait for Finanza to come next year.

 

Finanza was birthed, from Fin-S’ desire to redefine the notion of DU college competitions. The participant feedback, coupled with the massive turnaround - Fin-S achieved its intended goals and then some.

 

The organizing committee have always been dissatisfied with carrying on with the status quo. Fin-S has always been committed to innovation, to which Finanza was an ode.

 

E-FINANZA’19

 

E-Finanza held on 29th January 2019, served as a prelude to Finanza 2019. It pushed the envelope, by ambitiously amalgamating technology and business acumen – in a way, never seen before in the DU event circuit.

E-Finanza, journeyed its participants through a novel experience. An experience consisting of three enthralling yet rigorous rounds:

  1. Cryptomine: consisted of a preliminary and three higher-order rounds. Round 1 required contestants to indulge in lateral thinking and connect-the-dots between four or more, seemingly unconnected images.

Round 2 had contestants attempting questions centred around game theory and rational choice theory. Hence, participants had to choose answers which would be, according to them, the least selected.

Finally, round 3 saw contestants taking part in a new-age mock stock, wherein, pieces of news and their effect had to be appropriately judged.

This event saw an enthusiastic response with a total of 57 team registrations.

 

  1. Hedge Hammer: could only be termed as visionary. On the face, a simple mock stock exchange, there was far more under the surface. Contestants had to prudently assign their capital amongst stocks, futures and more, so as to ascertain the most valuable portfolio.

Hedge Hammer is the closest, E-Finanza participants have come to being a portfolio manager.

 

 

 

  1. BID Adieu: was the ultimate conclusion in this one-of-a-kind event. Consisting of two intensive bidding rounds and subsequent investments – participants had to keep in mind a myriad of factors while making their investmentdecisions.

Participants had to essentially create their own virtual tradingecosystem, by selecting their unique terms of brokerage and bidding conditions.

An Irking time crunch, also had a hand in pushing participants to the brink, and judged their temperament under pressure.

 

E-Finanza 2019, achieved everything it set out to, and then some. With a total footfall of 200+ students, the ambition of the organizing committee and Fin-S members was in the end – not in vain. Participants went back, expecting far more from any subsequent DU event they may visit.

CAREER COUNSELLING SESSION BY MR. VIKRAM MIGLANI

 

FinS- the finance society of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College organised an interactive session on Career Opportunities in Finance on 31 October 2018. The session was taken by Mr. Vikram Miglani, an eminent chartered financial analyst and financial risk manager.

Mr. Miglani shared his valuable experience of more than 13 years in banking and finance with the students and informed them about the various career opportunities in the financial world. Around …… students attended the session.

After discussing the skills and knowledge required to ace in the financial world, Mr. Miglani discussed two career options in detail, namely Financial Risk Management (FRM) and Chief Financial Analyst (CFA). He explained the course structure and the pattern of exams one needs to crack in order to get these certifications.

The session became quite interactive when students came up with their doubts and Mr. Miglani actively answered them.  Overall, the career counselling session successfully catered to the needs of young finance enthusiasts and gave them a lot of clarity regarding how to build a career in finance.

 

 

2015-2016

 

 
A trekking cum adventure trip of six days from24th to 29th September 2015 was organized to Valley of Flowers, a UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves.

Then the group visited Dhari Devi temple en-route Joshimath where they reached by 8 p.m.  Next morning it left for Auli. The mode of transportation to this destination was not the tourist bus, but  a Cable Car which was very exciting for the students. The next activity inline was Snow Trekking. The target was to reach a hilltop which was achieved by all the members of the group It was very adventurous, exciting and fun filled. After snow trekking there was a Cable Chair ride. Then a mesmerizing snowfall was witnessed. After that began second round of snow trekking.  
 
On the third day the group participated in 'Skiing'. First, members of the group took training from the locals and improved Skiing techniques. After being overwhelmed by the art of Skiing, the group departed from Auli. On way back the group visited the sacred Badrinath temple, where the statue of God is shifted for six months in winters. Next day in evening, the group reached Rishikesh and enjoyed the evening holy Ganga Arti on the bank of river Ganges. Next morning, there was a visit to Har Ki Pauri, Haridwar. Some students swimmed in the holy river Ganga and then ultimately all left for Delhi. The group reached Delhi by 7 p.m. on 26th Jan, 2015. It was a wonderful life time experience for all the members of the group and expects more to come from College Adventure Club in future.
