The success of the annual Research Challenge competitions depends on volunteers, students, and industry:
- CFA Institute societies and members
- University students
- Investment industry professionals
- Management teams from publicly traded companies
- Corporate sponsors
We rely on local hosts – typically our member societies – to invite universities and organize the local competitions. Last year over 2,500 volunteers participated in the Research Challenge in some capacity. Learn more about volunteering with the Research Challenge.
