This string of consecutive successes from UNYP teams in this prestigious and well recognized annual Competition, makes us all here at UNYP really proud of our students.

UNYP’s winning team will represent the Czech Republic in the Regional European Final in Amsterdam in April.

On behalf of UNYP’s Management and faculty we would like to congratulate them and wish them further successes in the future.


About the contest

The Research Challenge, organized globally by the CFA Institute, is an annual global competition that provides university students with intensive training in financial analysis. Students gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst and are tested on their ability to value a stock, write an initiation-of-coverage report, and present their recommendations. In the Czech round of this competition participants had to make their own financial analyses with an investment recommendation whether to buy, sell or hold shares of Pegas Nonwovens which are traded on the Prague Stock Exchange. The teams were mentored by experienced, CFA certified professionals with many years of experience of investment analysis.
