CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual competition aimed at university students testing their ability to conduct in-depth analysis of a listed company, with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis delivered through the CFA Institute network. Students gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst and are assessed on their ability to value a stock, write an initiation-of-coverage report, and present their recommendations.
