New Delhi, 15th February 2023: The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania announced the semifinalists for the Wharton Global High School Investment Competition. Run annually, by the Wharton Global Youth Program, it is a unique and exciting contest for high schoolers to explore the enormously invigorating world of finance.

The members of the team worked hard under the able guidance of their advisor and with the school’s support and infrastructure, the team was chosen on the basis of the strength of their investment knowledge, creativity, and teamwork.

“Every year it is a refreshing experience to see a new bunch of students with new ideas, approaches, and skill sets participate, but team Haven Finance demonstrated remarkably exceptional creativity and passion for financial literacy and the competition that truly set them apart.”, says Ms. Monica Thareja, Chief Advisor to the team. She added, “The competition is an eye-opener and really exposes the students to real-time challenges that investors and portfolio managers face when making quality investments. It expands the horizons for financial knowledge and this year it has been a pleasure working together with such an enthusiastic group of students who are working even harder now to make the school and country proud on the international stage.”


“The intricate world of responsible finance is opened to us and we are invited with open arms. While the assignment at first seems predominantly Herculean, even us students who are trying their hand for the first time at investing and wealth management eventually find it quite simple to navigate waters that only get deeper and deeper. Our school, Amity International School, Saket, was a tremendous support. From arranging sessions with professionals to informal workshops with past teams, the school and our advisor, Ms. Monica Thareja dreamed with us of going straight to the finals. That is why it was the best news when we got to know we would compete in the Semi-finals. Wharton Global High School Investment Competition was a dynamic experience and the learnings from it would help throughout life, no matter which field we decide to pursue. We are more motivated than ever and will definitely give our best shot to reach the finals!”
