Dear Dr Tsiritakis,

On behalf of the Hellenic CFA Society, we’d like to invite the University of Piraeus-Department of Banking and Finance to participate in the CFA Institute Research Challenge. Like any great challenge, this annual initiative provides all participants—including students and volunteers—with incredible opportunities.

The Research Challenge gives students all around the world the chance to learn best practices in equity research through hands-on mentoring and intensive training in company analysis. Last year’s competition featured nearly 6,000 students from more than 1,000 universities worldwide.

Open to both graduate and undergraduate students, as a participating university your team of three to five students will compete against other universities in the area and will have the chance to:

  • Analyze a public company
  • Be mentored by investment management professionals
  • Write an equity research report
  • Present their research to a high-profile panel of experts
  • Advance to Regional and Global levels of competition if they win the local challenge

Are your students up for the challenge? If so, please contact us and start organizing your team now. Thank you for your consideration and we hope to hear from you soon.

Dr Nikos Kagkarakis, CFA
