Do Magnetar employees volunteer with Magnetar Academy?

Yes. Since Magnetar Academy was established in 2011, employees have volunteered more than 20,000 hours and $8+ million has been donated by the Magnetar Capital Foundation.

The most common way employees contribute is by volunteering at our annual Magnetar Academy Team Challenge, a stock trading challenge that gives students a unique opportunity to experience what it’s like to trade stocks in a simulated competition.

The 2018 competition was our biggest yet with 400 students representing 48 teams from 34 high schools. Several dozen employees volunteered at the 2018 Team Challenge along with services professionals from other Chicago area firms. To get a sense of the event, check out the promotional video for last year’s competition.
