GIRLS TAKE THEIR WALL STREET EXPERIENCE FIELD TRIP
Students from Hopkins High School listening to Jody Gunderson, Managing Principal of CarVal Investors, during their field trip to the CarVal Investor offices in Minneapolis, MN.
Last month, students from Hopkins High School in Minnesota went on their semester-end RTSWS field trip to the CarVal Investors offices. CarVal Investors was founded by Cargill in 1987. In 2006, CarVal Investors became an independent subsidiary of Cargill, allowing the firm to expand more broadly as a fund manager.
The field trip represented the second of three components of the RTSWS academic year-long program. After a series of five on-campus RTSWS financial workshops led by female financial pros from CarVal, the students got to step into the shoes of their volunteer classroom instructors and meet some of their colleagues. The girls quickly took seats at the table to learn more about CarVal Investors’ global operations in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Later this month, the girls will participate in the third RTSWS component, our Mentor/Protege sessions during their spring semester.
The girls took a deep dive into Alternative Investments as they learned about CarVal’s niche investment strategies which include:
- Market Dislocations
- Distressed Debt
- Undervalued Investments
- Credit Intensive Assets
- Fundamental Analysis
- Career and Compensation
- Operations and Data
