The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students work in teams to research and analyse a publicly traded company — sometimes even meeting face-to-face with company management. Each team writes a research report on their assigned company with a buy, sell, or hold recommendation and may be asked to present and defend their analysis to a panel of industry professionals.

The first Research Challenge competition was hosted by the New York Society of Security Analysts in 2002 and involved just five teams from the New York area. Since then, the competition has grown to involve tens of thousands of students from over 900 universities in more than 75 countries.

The CFA Institute Research Challenge gathers together the university students, investment industry professionals, publicly traded companies, and corporate sponsors or local, regional, and global competition.

Additionally, all participants are introduced to and held to the standard of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct. This annual educational initiative promotes best practices in equity research through hands-on mentoring and intensive training in company analysis and presentation skills.

How the CFA Institute Research Challenge Works
Local CFA societies and CFA Institute host and launch local competitions involving teams of three to five business and finance students from participating universities who work directly with a local company in researching and preparing a company analysis.

Analysis of a Public Company
Teams research a publicly traded company, and company management presents to the teams and participates in a Q&A session.

Mentoring by a Professional Research Analyst
Each team works with a CFA charter holder who mentors the team during the research process and reviews and critiques its report.

Writing a Research Report
Each team produces an Initiation of Coverage report on its chosen company. The report is reviewed and scored by a group of judges.

Presentation of Research to a Panel of Experts
The teams' final presentations are locally evaluated by high-profile panels of experts from top financial institutions: Heads of research, portfolio managers, and chief investment officers from the world’s top firms. The team with the highest combined report and presentation score is the winner.

Advancement to the CFA Institute Research Challenge Global Finale
The local champions advance to regional competitions in the Americas, Asia, and Europe, and the winners of those competitions advance to the global finale.
