More Questions on Stock Pitch
What’s the difference between Springboard stock pitch event and others?
In the Springboard stock pitch event, you have to work on your own investment thesis from scratch by yourself. This differentiates yourself from other job candidates who participate in group based stock pitch events, such as CFA Global Research Challenge (which can be in a group). You will have the opportunity to master every part of equity investment research, from the financial model, company research, industry analysis to valuation. In addition, we will record your stock pitch and Q&A, so you can review your own performance at your convenient time (fees apply for non-Springboard Research track students).
How should I prepare for a stock pitch as it seems overwhelming that I need to do so many things?
Not to worry, we will provide a research template as well as other training materials that are used by our advanced research mentorship program (Research Like a Pro). You can find answers at your fingertips by reaching out to us. This is a great opportunity for you to learn how to use a professional investment research framework in a real assignment.
I am afraid of being wrong or embarrassed in the event if I get tough questions. What should I do?
The more you feel so, the more you should practise to increase your chance of acing front office interviews, which could be even tougher. We see the positive transition from a shy presenter to a confident presenter in many of our past success stories. They mastered the stock pitch skills and eventually landed a front office job.
