"Regardless of who ultimately wins, this contest has already been a tremendous success," said Divya Narendra, CEO/Co-Founder of SumZero, Inc. "We received a huge number of submissions from professionals working at top hedge funds and mutual funds. These are incredibly talented individuals who do not get heard from on a large scale often enough because they don't manage a lot of assets or because they haven't made a blockbuster trade. Thanks to this contest we're now hearing from a lot of them and the investing public will now hear from them as well."
Eligible contest participants were required to be current members of the SumZero community and had to have significant experience at buyside investment institutions including hedge funds, mutual funds or private equity funds with limited exception.

The contest officially kicked off on July 10, 2012 and concluded on September 4, 2012.
