After five months of research on this year's subject company AtlasCopco. Thursday the 12th of February saw the four finalst teams; KTH, Lund University, Mälardalen University and Stockholm School of Economics, in the 2015 Swedish IRC final present their recommendation and target price on AtlasCopco.
Lund University's written report impressed the graders. The judges, Charlotta Faxen (Lannebo Fonder), Peder Frölen (Handelsbanken Capital Markets), Jill Bederoff (Veckans Affärer) and Thomas Brodin (Cliens) were equally convinced by the team's HOLD recommendation. The team gave a very professional presentation supported by robust financial analysis and conclusions.
Lund University was represented by Martijn Bakker (team captain), Chadwick Rufus Dorai, Koen van Veen, Hendrik Ilchmann and David Salomon. The team was mentored by Alf Riple, CFA and had guidance from their faculty advisor Niclas Andren, PhD.
The Board of CFA Sweden would like to thank all the volunteers that made this year's challenge a great success: mentors, graders, judges, Karin von Matern at AtlasCopco. A big thank you goes out to the challenge sponsors; Handelsbanken, FactSet and Kaplan Schweser.
