The CFA Institute Research Challenge in Switzerland is part of the CFA Institute Research Challenge globally organized since 2007. It is an international educational initiative in which leading industry professionals guide business and finance students in researching and reporting on a publicly-traded company. Student teams of 3-5 Bachelor/Master students take the role of financial analysts over the course of one semester. Teams research a predetermined publicly traded company, prepare a research report and deliver a presentation on their investment thesis. The student teams are evaluated on the basis of their research report, the delivery of their presentation and their ability to respond to detailed questions from the judges.

The company analyzed this year is  Geberit the global market leader in the development, production, and marketing of field device solutions for controlling heating, ventilation and air conditioning. 

The students were supported by mentors who are senior members of CFA Society Switzerland and CFA charterholders. The team’s reports were graded and commented upon by several finance professionals and CFA charterholders on a completely anonymous basis. Their final presentations will be evaluated by a high-profile panel of judges consisting of senior analysts, portfolio managers, heads of research and chief investment officers in Switzerland.
We kindly acknowledge the support of ZKB for sponsoring this event as well as Finanz + Wirtschaft for being our media partner, sponsoring newspapers and covering the event.
