How the CFA Institute Global Investment Research Challenge Works.
Winners of the local CFA societies' Investment Research Challenge from North and South America are currently in New York competing for the opportunity to advance to the Global finals. Universities assemble teams of 3-5 finance students who work directly with a company in researching and preparing a company analysis. The team’s final presentations are locally evaluated by high-profile panels of heads of research, portfolio managers, and chief investment officers from the world’s top firms. The local champions advance to regional competitions in the Americas, Asia, and Europe and then to the global finale which this year is being held on 2 April 2009 in London, UK. The results will be posted at:
