'Aamdani'-The Finance and Investment Cell

Report: Fintastic'21

Who can forget the quote ''All work and no play make Jack a dull boy''?

Following these lines, Aamdani-The Finance and Investment Cell of the college organised its Annual Fest, ''FINTASTIC'21'' from 17th February-26th February, to energize the students.

ACCRUAL MADNESS, the first event of FINTASTIC'21, took place on 17th February at 3 pm followed by the final round on 19th February. A massive number of registrations came in with 50+ teams of two members each, from across DU and Non-DU colleges. All the participants were added to a WhatsApp group and were provided with the rules of round 1- CODE- DECODE. In this round, teams answered diverse finance-related questions through which they decoded the google meet code and entered the pre-scheduled meeting. The questions were set in such a way that the first alphabet of the answer to the first question was the first letter of the code, the first alphabet of the answer to the second question was the second code, and so on. The 10 teams who entered the meeting first, qualified to round 2.

Pictionary and Guess the Gibberish were the two games organized simultaneously for Round 2, in which each team player played one of these two games. These fun rounds required the participants to be quick on their feet while thinking critically. Five questions were asked from each player, and the time limit per question was restricted to 20 seconds. The top 5 teams made it to the final round. The last round was held on 19th February that tested the participants' financial acumen and wit during a period of uncertainty for the world economy. In this round, participants were asked to envisage themselves as the CEO/CFO of the companies allotted to them and present their company's situation during the last year (2020-21) considering all the unprecedented events like the pandemic, recovery of the world economy as well as Union Budget 2021. They also had to mention how their company dealt with all these hurdles and predict their company's future with facts and observation. Each team was given five minutes to present their ideas. The last round was a highly enriching affair for all the participants, as it helped them to understand how companies from various sectors reacted during a highly uncertain time and also improved their skills in communication and finance.

THE FINCRICK BATTLE, the second event of Fintastic'21 was a quiz competition followed by an impressive IPL Auction. The first round took place on 22nd on Google Forms, while the auction was held on 23rd February on Google Meet. The event received a fantastic response from students across the country, with 175+ registrations. The quiz was based on cricket, where we tested the participants' knowledge of cricket and finance at the same time. Eight teams went through for the final auction. In the finals, eight teams were given a specific IPL team, where they were supposed to create their best team within a given amount. The teams were also expected to follow specific rules in the game to win the competition. The competitors showed their best spirit, and everyone enjoyed the competition. The best two teams were recognized and awarded prizes for their wins. The event closed with cheerful faces and enthusiasm.

TRACECASE, the third and the final event of Fintastc'21, was a case study competition in collaboration with Case Connect Club. The event was divided into two rounds and we were overwhelmed with the response of 79 registrations. Round 1 began on 19th February, 2021 where case study was mailed to all the participants. The deadline for the final submission of case study was 21 February 2021, 11.59 p.m. A total of 4 teams were selected for Round 2 which was held on 26th February, 2021. The selected teams presented their case to a panel of judges namely Mr. Daksh Sethi, the Founder of Guby Rogers and Mr. Mohit Verma, the founder and CEO of Step Up Student who cross questioned the teams for their cases and guided them for the same. Judges emphasised on practical aspects of the case solution presented by the participants. The teams learned the crucial part of communication skills during enlightening question answer round for each team. It was a very interactive session where the team were encouraged for their ideas as well as strengths and weaknesses were brought into light. Suggestions were put forward by judges on teams' solutions which were quite cost effective and environment friendly. The event was closed with an amazing speech by our judges.

With this it was a successful wrap to Fintastic'21 with the hope of organising such knowledgeable and fun events in future.
