Sohn Investment Conference IRA Sohn Stock Game

New York, NY – April 17, 2018 – The Sohn Conference Foundation today launched the Ira Sohn Stock Game in advance of the 23rd Annual Sohn Investment Conference, taking place on April 23 at Lincoln Center. In this fantasy stock competition, players are given one million tokens worth of fantasy capital to construct an investment portfolio, and the $100 donation to participate will fund the Foundation’s mission to treat and cure pediatric cancer. The player with the highest performing portfolio will be named the winner and awarded two complimentary tickets to the 2019 Sohn Investment Conference in New York next year.

“The Ira Sohn Stock Game is an exciting way to engage anyone interested in building their dream portfolio, while also raising money for a critical cause,” said Evan Sohn, Vice President of The Sohn Conference Foundation. “For 23 years, as the original and premier investment idea event, The Sohn Investment Conference has honored Ira Sohn’s career as a successful Wall Street professional. This game is another way to build upon that legacy.”

To connect the competition to content presented at the conference, three of the participants’ stocks in their portfolio must be picks from speakers at The Sohn Investment Conference and Next Wave Sohn. Registration for the contest opens today and closes on Friday, April 27 at 5PM ET, and is open to all investing enthusiasts. Once participants have registered for the contest, they can begin building their portfolio when The Sohn Investment Conference in New York starts on Monday, April 23 at 9:30AM ET and will have until Friday, February 8, 2019 at 5PM ET to play.

The game is operated through Portfolios with Purpose. Interested individuals can register for the Ira Sohn Stock Game here.
