About the Kick-Off Event

CFA Institute and CFA Association Russia are officially launching Research Challenge, an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Participants gain real-world experience as they assume the roles of research analysts, getting tested on their abilities to value a stock, write a financial report, and present their recommendations in-person to a panel of senior industry professionals.

Research Challenge is coordinated at the local level by CFA Association Russia. The official start of the competition, the Kick-Off event, will be held at Moscow Exchange and welcome all participants of the 2018-2019 Research Challenge. During the Kick-Off, students will meet representatives of the subject company - Norilsk Nickel, members of CFA Association Russia, learn about the rules of the competition, and ask organizational questions.
