Kim Watle, Senior Investment Analyst, and Helge Nordahl, Vice President, Analytics were key contributors when four teams of students from various business schools in the Nordic region were trained in real life equity research and value assessment processes in the Nordic version of the CFA Institute Research Challenge last Thursday.

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual competition that encourages university students to challenge themselves with intensive training in equity research. Teams from universities around the world are required to conduct research on a publicly traded company, generate a written report and showcase their research findings to a panel of industry professionals. The competition takes place at local, regional, and global levels.

Kim Watle sits on the board of the CFA Society Norway who co-hosted the challenge together with Finansforeningen/CFA Society Denmark. Helge Nordahl was a jury member and assessed the written report produced by the teams.

– The teams have undergone intense preparations in the months leading up to the assessment and have completed a 30 pages sell-side report with support from industry professionals. We are very proud to arrange such event for future finance talents, says Kim Watle.
