Research Challenge at a Glance

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis and professional ethics. CFA Society Cyprus is responsible for bringing the CFA Institute Research Challenge to local universities. A local-level Research Challenge is a local competition run entirely by CFA Society volunteers. Local competitions invite at least three different universities, each sponsoring a team of 3 to 5 students, to participate. The CFA Research Challenge competition is unique because it promotes best practices, research skills, analysis, report writing, and presentation skills in action. It promotes how to conduct research ethically, how to analyze the relevant data and develop a recommendation and how to present and defend that recommendation in a professional manner. Students are tested on their analytical, valuation, report writing, and presentation skills, enabling them to gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst.
