Finance Forum hosted the 2nd edition of the TAPMI Bloomberg Olympiad, from 14th to 15th October, with 10 teams competing for the Championship Trophy.
The First round saw the Bloomberg Champions from SMIS, N.L Dalmia, Great Lakes, and T.A Pai Management Institute emerge as the top 4 teams. The final round tested the knowledge of the Champions in using the Bloomberg Terminals in asset allocation through Technical Analysis.

As per our tradition, we hosted a special Friday Nights Series, but unlike every other year, the talk was hosted in the seminar hall as against the Finance Lab, owing to the large batch interest. The speaker was Mr. Akshay Chinchalkar from Bloomberg, who is renowned as a Market Specialist for Charts, and Technical Analysis.
