The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students work in teams to research and analyse a publicly traded company — sometimes even meeting face-to-face with company management. Each team writes a research report on their assigned company with a buy, sell, or hold recommendation and may be asked to present and defend their analysis to a panel of industry professionals. Introduced in 2006, CFA Institute Research Challenge is considered as the ‘Investment Olympics’ for university students, with more than 10,000 students having participated. This year, more than 3,700-plus students from 825-plus universities worldwide will participate in the local rounds of the competition.
