NYC - CFA Global Investment Research Challenge - Americas Regional


So, here's a brief summary of what this competition is all about:

Desnews Article

Basically, we were assigned a local public company to develop an investment thesis on. The judges graded us on our ability to present our research and be persuasive in question and answer. We won the local competition in Utah (against 6 schools), and this week won the Americas regional in NYC (28 schools from North and South America). Now we move onto Hong Kong to compete globally (4 schools are involved, one from Europe, Asia, NY, and us).

Here are some pictures. It was a lot of fun!
