Picture 4

A team of five ICMA Centre Students, Richa Patil, Stephane Caps, Peter Bamrud, Andres Acevedo Vega and Bogdan Mihaila, won the CFA Institute Research Challenge UK and moved forward to face off against Europe’s finest in the EMEA Final to win the chance to complete on the global stage.

The worldwide competition includes thousands of students from over 1,000 Universities in more than 75 countries.

As part of the challenge, students work in teams to research and analyse a publicly traded company and write a research report on their assigned company with a buy, sell, or hold recommendation. The students may then be asked to present and defend their analysis to a panel of industry professionals.

At the EMEA final In Dublin, our students held their own against stiff competition from some of Europe’s top Universities but did not progress further in the competition.

Despite the result, the students commented that they’ve gained a huge amount of knowledge, confidence, and contacts from this experience and are proud to have won the UK competition.
