Sharpe Ratio is a formula that measures whether your returns are large enough to compensate for the amount of risk you are taking. It is used by professionals to determine if they have enough skill to compete in the industry.

The goal for this challenge is achieve Sharpe Ratio greater than 1. 

At EquitySim we believe if you can consistently achieve this, you have enough financial acumen to manage your own money "actively".

The timeframe for this challenge is 3 months, by using our ranking function you can track yourself on weekly, and monthly timeframes.

Those who can achieve Sharpe Ratio over 1 will be awarded a badge to acknowledge this accomplishment in their end of challenge certificate.


You can use the challenge in both competitive and collaborative ways. Push yourself to be at the top of leaderboards, or share strategies with other learners to improve your understanding of Sharpe Ratio. We aim to facilitate the medium to unlocking new strategies on how to maximize Sharpe Ratio.
