Spencer Singleton ’17 is a Supply Chain Management major from Wharton, Texas and is the son of Howard and Kim Singleton. A Junior in Company E-2, he served as their Professional Development Sergeant for the 2015-2016 school year.
Spencer has a keen interest in stock trading – something that has gained him a lot of attention over the past year. He won 1st place in the Mays Business School BP Trading Competition in March and is the recent winner of the Quantopian Open, a contest that challenges contestants to manage large portfolios to see how big a profit they can earn. During the contest Spencer managed a portfolio of $100,000 for 6 months, putting his investment model and innovative ideas to the test, and took overall first place. Because he won he was also able to keep any profits he gained.
Spencer has been featured in Fortune and Reuters for his accomplishments in the stock trading industry and he’s only a junior. He also does independent consulting to help others with the automation of trading strategies. He has a bright future ahead of him in an industry that is extremely volatile and difficult to predict. He has been accepted into Trading, Risk and Investment Program with the Mays Business School with plans to acquire a Master’s in Financial Management. After receiving his master’s degree Spencer says he hopes to leverage his experience to launch his own hedge fund.
Spencer is an exceptional cadet who has shown outstanding leadership both in the Corps and in the Mays Business School. He is another great example of the amazing Cadets we have in the Corps. I have every confidence that Spencer will go on to great success in the business world, and will make all of us proud as he excels in all of his future endeavors.
