Anthony Centeno, ’14, a UCF College of Business Administration (#UCFBusiness) alumnus, claimed the highest score in the world on Citigroup’s “Citi on Campus” markets quiz.
Centeno beat out competitors from more than 40 other universities, including Vanderbilt, the London School of Economics, Princeton, Cambridge and New York University.
Citigroup’s “Citi on Campus” app is designed to test knowledge of global financial markets, as well as specific details of the behavior and function of securities, as well as metrics such as currencies, equities, bonds, rates and credit default swaps.
“Anthony was an integral part of our organization while he was here,” said Austin Moeller, president of the Young Investors Club. “I’m not surprised that he performed so well. The Young Investors Club has a reputation for preparing students for success in the financial sector.”
Centeno currently works as a derivatives analyst for BNY Mellon, an American multi-national banking and financial services corporation headquartered in New York City.
