Seven young and talented teams from the various universities came together on Saturday, 8 February, 2020 to pit their research, analytical and presentation skills against one another in our CFA Institute Research Challenge Season 2019-2020 where they had a choice of analysing either SGX or SEA to form a buy, hold or sell call to industry veterans. Sponsored by our Official Global Data Provider, Refinitiv, precautionary measures such as taking temperatures and having everyone use hand sanitisers before entering the premises were taken before the competition.

Congratulations to the winning team of JT Capital from SMU, and to runner-up Mamba Capital from NUS!
