Public Companies: Be the Subject of the Competition
Each CFA Institute Research Challenge team analyzes a public company, writes a report that is reviewed and judged by CFA charterholders, and presents its analysis to a panel of local investment professionals. Companies that make their senior management available for questions and research gain unbiased research and recommendations from student teams.
Join the ranks of past subject companies such as Adidas, Mexichem, Marriott, Vodafone, Aer Lingus, Hyundai, and First Gulf Bank and be part of shaping future investment management professionals.
