The 2019/20 Voleo Student Equity Competition Sponsored by Nasdaq has started!

One of our favorite parts of the competition is learning from the brilliant minds of student investors. Their passion for financial literacy, investing and personal growth is inspiring! 

Over the competition, we will share and highlight our Ambassadors who are leading from the front at their school.  We've asked them some questions about investing experience, stock strategies, and advice to fellow participants, investors, and students.

Meet Camilla Chung

Camilla Chung

Q: How did you get involved with investing? How much investing experience would you say you have to date?

A: “I started to get involved with investing because I think an understanding investment is very important for managing personal income in the long run. Also, I want to get hands-on exposure with investing because what we learn in school is very different from what it is in reality. I have around 1 year of investing experience."

Q: What’s your go-to investing strategy? Do you have any particular companies or industries that you’re drawn to?

A:  “I like to look at technology companies."

Q: If you could give other investors one tip, what would it be?

A: "You need to understand the financial of the company properly and follow analysts’ views on the company. Do not just invest in a company because it’s price has gone up or down after a single event."

Q: Why did you choose to join the Voleo Student Equity Competition?

A: "It’s a good platform for me to start learning how to invest in stocks and to share my investing ideas with schoolmates. I’m also interested in pursuing a career in sales & trading so joining the competition will give me exposure to trading equities. "
