 CFA Institute Research Challenge in Ireland

The CFA Institute Research Challenge offers students the unique opportunity to learn from leading industry experts and compete with peers from the world’s top finance programs. This annual educational initiative promotes best practices in equity research among the next generation of analysts through hands-on mentoring and intensive training in company analysis and presentation skills.

The Challenge gathers students, investment industry professionals, publicly traded companies, and corporate sponsors together locally, regionally, and globally for a real world competition.  Additionally, all participants are introduced to and held to the standard of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

CFA Society Ireland is proud to host the tenth annual local level of the CFA Institute Research Challenge in Ireland.

The subject company for the 2017-2018 challenge was CRH and the winners of the Irish Final, held in March were UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.

With thanks to DAVY, KAPLAN, SETANTA ASSET MANAGEMENT AND S&P GLOBAL MARKET INTELLIGENCE for their support.
