On September 14, 2016, Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia (PUC) South Campus hosted a presentation on the topic of the ASEAN Stock Challenge, a stock trading competition for Cambodian university students. The presentation was given by Mrs. Oum Chenda Pheakdey, Head of Corporate Resources for CIMB Bank, and Mr. Try Taihy, Assistant Manager of the Cambodia Security Exchange.
Each student is given $8,000 to buy and sell stock. The winner of the competition in Cambodia goes on to compete in a regional contest with winners from other ASEAN countries. The regional winner will receive an internship at CIMB Bank.
Opening remarks were given by Prof. Mak Vann, Senior Vice President in charge of the Faculty of Business & Economics and the Faculty of Tourism, Hospitality Management & Entrepreneurship. He said he appreciated the speakers spending their valuable time to inform and to share their education and experience with PUC students.
This is the third ASEAN Stock Challenge. Cambodia was proud to win second prize at the regional competition the last two years. “We hope there will be more and more candidates this third year challenge”, said Mrs. Pheakdey. The competition starts on September 19, 2016 and ends on January 9, 2017.
