CFA Institute Research Challenge – take part in the equity research contest
In order to promote best practices in equity research and company analysis, students are getting a chance to research, analyze, and report on a listed company as if they are practicing analysts.
Unique opportunity for students
The challenge gathers students, investment industry professionals, publicly traded companies, and corporate sponsors together for a real world competition. An existing European listed company provides presentation and their investment department are available for the ‘analysts calls’.
Top Czech investment professionals involved
Czech CFA society’s members being top Czech investment professionals are grading the research studies and evaluating the finalists’ presentations. Further, each team of 3-5 students is assigned a mentor, CFA charter-holder, with an extensive experience.
Not just an exercise
Additionally, all participants are introduced to and held to the standard of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.
