    Was thinking of participating in this from my university. Anyone got any inputs on this? Or if anyone’s taken part before?

    Good initiative @Snippy – I haven’t done this before so wouldn’t be able to advise. Sounds like something fun to get involved in regardless!

    @snippy Hi! I had taken part in it last year. The challenge consists of three rounds; Local, Regional and Global rounds. My team won the local challenge and then we represented Team Pakistan in Asia Pacific regional round at Honk Kong. It was a great learning experience. The competition is a great way to get a real-life experience of equity research and model making. The competition will not only provide you ample opportunities to network, but it will also boost your resume. So do take part in it! 😉

    I am taking part in it this year for my school.

    They’ve already given us our company. Its a lot of research.

    I’m hoping that this will give me an opportunity to mingle and network with some professionals.

    Keep us posted @snippy, @handullz – I haven’t done it myself, quite curious what it involves and whether it’s fun! Do share your experiences with the community as you progress

    Ah, unfortunately, I will not be taking part. Since there were two teams from my uni, there was a short competition, and me and my teammates didn’t make it.

    Good luck to you @handullz!

    Yeah. We were given the choice to value any company we wanted and give a small presentation. Following the basic format of the challenge.
