The team of RWTH Aachen University reached the final round of the best eight universities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in the regional decision of the EMEA region. This was the first time that a German university had qualified for the final of the competition.

At the CFA Institute Research Challenge, the best young analysts are awarded every year. In the competition, teams of students from universities all over the world compete against each other. The competition for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region took place in Zurich on 11 April.

The team from RWTH Aachen University prevailed in the Germany decision in February and now competed against 43 teams of future investment experts. The team was supervised by Dr. Astrid Salzmann from the Chair of Corporate Finance.

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual, international university competition that offers students intensive practical experience and professional insights into financial analysis. Every year, more than 5,000 students from more than 1,000 universities worldwide take part. The teams prepare a securities analysis of a listed company and then make a buy/hold/sell recommendation.
