Do you want real-life experience as an equity analyst?
Do you want access and exposure to leading industry professionals?
Do you want the opportunity to travel to Bangkok, Thailand?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, then the CFA Institute Research Challenge is a fantastic opportunity to make that happen.
The Research Challenge is a Worldwide intercollegiate competition between teams of students where teams of 3-5 students will be asked to prepare and present sell-side equity research on a target company.
Students will need to complete a thorough analysis of the publicly-traded company, write a research report and present their information to a panel of judges.
FAWA is currently seeking teams of 3-5 students to participate in the CFA Institute's annual research challenge to represent UWA.
If successful at a local level (top team in WA), the team will proceed to regional finals held in the week of March 15, 2017 in Bangkok.
It is required that all students who wish to participate attend a kick-off session which will be held at a location in Perth city on August 24th in the evening. At this session teams will be provided with essential information about the challenge, so it is recommended that applicants be available on this date. PLEASE NOTE: you are welcome to attend as an individual and finalise a team in the days following the kick of session.
Following on from this session, one team will be chosen to represent UWA. FAWA will be hosting a small equity research challenge as part of screening for teams who wish to enter. Teams who nominate their interest will be given more information on this following the kick of session.
To attend the kick of session please send your name as well as the name of your team members (if you have formed a group) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12.00pm Monday 22nd of August.
