Upper School Students Rock the World of Finance

Over the past several weeks, students in Mr. El Alam's Mathematical Finance class researched and presented on topics of interest within the world of economics and finance.
Each 10-minute presentation was followed by extensive Q & A with students and visitors to the class. Topics included: 529 Savings Plans, Financial Crimes, Mortgages, History of the Dollar Bill, Banks and Banking, Stock Options, Traditional and Roth IRAs, Real Estate Investment Trusts, Bernie vs. Donald Tax Plan Models, Tax Evasion, Crowdfunding, Charitable Remainder Trusts, the Enron Scandal, Collateral Debt Obligation, Electronic Money Transferring (VENMO), Bonds, and High Frequency Trading. Mr. El Alam was highly impressed by the detailed knowledge and confident delivery of this newly minted group of experts.
