CFA Institute Research Challenge 2020/2021

The Allianz Endowed Chair of Finance and the Center of Asset and Wealth Management are pleased to announce that a team of five students will represent WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in the CFA Institute Research Challenge 2020/2021.

The goal of the CFA Institute Research Challenge is to test university students on their analytical, valuation, report writing, and presentation skills. By writing an equity research report about Teamviewer, they will have the opportunity to gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst.

This year’s WHU team will be represented by the following students:

  1. Mr. Philipp Herzog, BSc Class 2021
  2. Mr. Sufyan Osamah, MSc Class 2022
  3. Mr. Dominik Konstantin Nowak,  BSc Class 2021
  4. Mr. Nikolaus Ridder, MSc Class 2021
  5. Mr. Ananta Ghale, MSc Class 2022

The winning team in Germany will further take part in the CFA Institute Sub - Regional Challenge for the EMEA region held in April 2021 and in case of success in the Regional and Global Final. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all events will be held virtually. However, we believe, regardless of the struggles which may arise, the team will strive for excellence and deliver a fruitful result.

We wish the team all the best for the competition!
