FNA is pleased to announce the return of its G20 Monitor Challenge. 

The competition calls for students and recent graduates to propose a new dashboard for FNA’s G20 Monitor, our award-winning financial network analytics and monitoring tool.

Winners and runners-up will receive a cash prize of up to $1,500 and will be invited to work as an intern with FNA’s Data Scientists. The G20 interns will transform their dashboard proposal from design to reality.

The challenge is open to all university students and recent graduates. Participants can work individually or in teams. 

Participants must submit their 400-word proposal and dashboard mock-up by 23:59:00 (UK Time) on 11th February 2022. We will announce the winners during the first week of March. 

Full details and the submission form can be found here > 

FNA built the G20 Monitor in response to the unprecedented challenges of the Covid-19 crisis. The Monitor was awarded first prize in the inaugural edition of the G20 TechSprint hosted by the Bank of International Settlements’ Innovation Hub and G20 Saudi Presidency. 

The solution, developed in collaboration with a panel of regulators, includes ten monitors with 25 interactive dashboards exploring and monitoring the global financial systems. The monitors offer the ability to track interconnectedness within the financial system. 

FNA’s first G20 Monitor challenge received over 300 submissions. 

Katerina Rigana (Universita della Svizzera Italiana) and Edoardo Giovannini (LUISS Guido Carli) were announced overall winners for their submissions, ‘Causality Networks and Contagion on Estimation in Currency Markets’ and ‘SME Watcher’. 

Runner’s up included Guiseppe Matera (University of Edinburgh) for his proposal, ‘Diversify et Impera: Money Market Funds Portfolio Overlaps’, Jakub Schrimpel (University of Amsterdam) for his proposal, ‘Identification of Internal MREL requirements in the cross-border banking’. Yijie Zhou was the final runner up for his ‘Trophic Analysis’ proposal: Applying the idea of Food Chains to Financial and Economic Data. 

Both winners and runners were offered internships with FNA to develop their dashboards further with FNA’s Data Scientists, with Guiseppe Matera and Katerina Rigana continuing full time. Yijie Zhou has also continued in a part-time role as he completes his PhD.
