Sign up before May 1st (use the link in the article) – electronic submission of answers Thursday May 9th – Finals at CBS, Ovnhallen, Friday May 10th – with a prize of kr. 10,000.

Thursday and Friday, May 9th and 10th 2013, CBS’ FinanceLab will be hosting Denmark’s first investment strategy case competition, the Investment Strategy Challenge – sign up before May 1st.

Kr. 10,000 for the best student-investors
Investment Strategy Challenge is a newly started case competition, focused on giving finance- and investment interested students an opportunity to try out their skills by facing the challenges an investment consultant meets in a workday.

The 24 hour competition on May 9th and 10th, 2013 is meant for 3rd year Bachelor students and Master’s students and has a main prize of kr. 10,000.
FinanceLab of CBS is behind the competition, in collaboration with Denmark’s leading investment consultant, Kirstein A/S, who does independent advisory services for professional clients in, among other things, investment and strategy.

As participants in the competition, the students will get the opportunity to challenge their knowledge of financial analysis, investments and investment strategies. They’ll do so by solving a true to life investment strategy case.

Presentation final for professional investment executives
The three best groups will move on from the first round – by way of submitting their answers online – and will present their answers to a panel of executives from the investment industry.

The finals will take place at CBS, in Ovnhallen at Porcelænshaven, from 3 pm to 6 pm, Friday, May 10th.

In addition to CEO Jesper Kirstein of Kirstein A/S, the panel consists of investment executives Robert Neumann of Tryghedsgruppen, Claus Stampe of PensionDanmark and Blackrock Managing Director Peter Beske Nielsen.

The best performance will, as mentioned above, be awarded with kr. 10,000. You can find more information about Investment Strategy Challenge and sign up through Kirstein A/S’s website.
