CFA Institute Research Challenge Switzerland: University of Lausanne lives up to its role as favourite
As in the previous year, a team from the University of Lausanne has won the Swiss competition of the CFA Institute Research Challenge in 2019. Thus, Lausanne’s Faculty of Business and Economics (HEC Lausanne) consolidates its position as a breeding ground for successful financial analysts.
The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual competition to honor the best presentation and case study of a listed company by a team of students. In 2019, the young analysts evaluated Landis+Gyr. Founded in 1896, the Swiss company is the world’s leading provider of integrated energy management solutions for the energy industry. The winning team recommends Landis+Gyr shares traded on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the symbol LAND to buy and sets a price expectation of CHF 84.50 (+ 36 %).
The winning team of the 2019 CFA Institute Research Challenge Switzerland, John Cody Zimmermann, Henri Enguerran Badoux, Karine Chammas, Alexandre Axilais, Nicolas Bregnard (from left to right, © Carole Fleischmann), are students of Prof. Dr. Norman Schürhoff at the University of Lausanne.
