Title

Get Rich Quick in Rio - Part 3/3

Abstract

In the summer of 2018, several BYU students met with Jim Galbrandsen - a hedge fund manager for NCH Capital based in Rio de Janiero.  Jim is in charge of the firm's investment activities in all of Latin America and analyzes data to determine the best possible investments.  He has collected data about numerous companies and asked for our help in analyzing the data.  Our team is looking at the data to determine if there are any trends that will predict profit returns.  This is the third part of our presentation and details our future attempts and ideas we have regarding potential solutions.
