Get Involved — Industry

Each year, 1,000 university-sponsored teams and more than 6,000 students worldwide participate in one of over 110 local-level CFA Institute Research Challenge competitions. Among these students are future portfolio managers, research analysts, and CFA Institute members. The best and brightest teams advance to regional events in Asia Pacific, the Americas, and EMEA, and finally to the Global Final.

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.
