About CFA® Institute Research Challenge

The CFA® Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides hands-on mentoring and intense training in financial analysis and professional ethics to university students around the world. Analytical, valuation, report writing, and presentation skills will be assessed for each student. Assuming the role of a research analyst, they receive practical experience.

Every year, the CFA® Institute Research Challenge brings together over 5,000 students from over 1,000 colleges in almost 100 countries, as well as over 3,500 industry experts, publicly-traded corporations, and sponsored businesses. Furthermore, all competitors must be familiar with and adhere to the CFA® Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

Students competing in the competition received intense training directly from senior analysts, experts in financial analysis, gaining themselves skills on how to construct a valuation model, and how to present investment ideas to a council of experts from prominent securities and fund management firms in the most effective way possible.

After three months of serious competition, on this Saturday, 15th Jan 2022, the following four finalist teams will compete for the National Championship:

  • Banking Academy
  • Foreign Trade University – Hanoi Campus
  • Foreign Trade University – HCMC Campus
  • RMIT University – HCMC Campus

This is a memorable moment for the four teams to shine and demonstrate their capability and skills in company analysis in front of the judges after a long journey filled with dedication and hard effort. Winning the National Championship will help the selected team to represent Vietnam in the Asia Pacific Final Rounds, taking place in April and May 2022.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of the Judges who assisted us in selecting the best team, as well as to all of our partners, amiCoach, Smart Train, and DNU Nestworking, for providing excellent support to the CFA Institute Research Challenge Vietnam Round in this season 2021-2022. Our sincere thanks also go to the university advisors, the professors of the 19 universities for their support to the student teams. Last but not least, we are sincerely thankful to the Mentors, Graders, and all the volunteers of the organizing team for their effort to help the students and for making this competition successful.
