On Saturday, August 27, 2016, President and CEO of Ferrari Sergio Marchionne was the guest of honor at the award ceremony for the second Rotman European Trading Competition. "It is a source of great hope for us here, and indeed for all Europeans" stated Marchionne at the beginning of his speech, "to see so many young people here from across the EU united by your keen interest in the financial markets and your desire to test yourselves against each other and the realities of those markets. Even more importantly, you are united by your desire to take on challenges, grow and create something of value."
The CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles spoke about his career, his role in the company created by Enzo Ferrari, and of the importance of working as a team. He then took questions from the students competing in the international applied finance competition.
In the presence of LUISS President Emma Marcegaglia, Marchionne awarded this year's champions, the LUISS team.
