The Hong Kong final of CFA Institute Research Challenge 2013-14 was held on 16 November 2013, with one team from each of the eight participating universities competing for the winning place. The CUHK Team formed by Alan Yip, Boris Ng, Peggy Tse (all GBS, Year 4) and Angus Lee (Quantitative Finance, Year 4) stood out and captured the championship.
The competition gives the opportunity to university students to take on the role of investment research analysts. Preparation includes intensive training in company analysis and presentation skills by leading investment professionals. The competition sees participants develop and present equity research reports. Interaction with corporate leaders and experienced analysts helps to enhance participants’ career prospects, and reinforce financial industry’s ethical standards.
The CUHK team will present Hong Kong at the Asia Pacific Regional Final in Thailand in April 2014. Over 3,700 students from more than 825 universities in more than 58 countries are competing at the regional level for a spot in the global finals.
