  • What is the investment horizon of investments for the first round?
    The investment horizon is long term; approximately ten years.
  • Can we add appendices to the report to explain our investment model or thesis?
    Yes, you can add appendices to the two-pager report to explain your model or thesis, but this is limited to one extra page. This page could include a snapshot of your model (images) without any text or explanations. Key valuation assumptions and forecasts should form a part of the main two-pager report.

    Round 1 - Score Card Communication (30 points) Presentation is concise and to the point Information presented in logical order Student shows creativity and professionalism Fundamental Analysis (30 points) The facts presented are correct and relevant to the analysis Key information on the company and the industry have been well described Business model and key revenue/cost drivers are appropriately identified Defensiveness of the cash flow profile Historical financial results snapshot Overview of ESG risks and benefits Investment Thesis (40 points) Investment thesis supported by well-researched fundamental analysis Student identifies direction (improvement/deterioration) of KPIs/key trends over the long term Preliminary valuation analysis is used to ascertain attractiveness of risk/return Student develops his/her own conclusions and long-term outlook
  • Can a student receive the mentoring if they already have an internship for summer 2025?
    Yes.
  • Any recommendation to improve the odds of being selected as a finalist?
    Read publicly available documents (company presentation, 10-Q, 10-K) as well as sell-side reports. It also helps to listen to a few recent earnings calls and the most recent investor and analyst day. This should provide a solid foundation for the two-pager analysis. While referring to sell-side reports, we recommend that you use your own thinking and creativity to make a decision instead of blindly relying on and reproducing the recommendation of sell-side reports.
