The 5th annual QFAC Stock Pitch Competition will invites students from schools in the United States and Canada to submit a stock pitch in the form of a PowerPoint document. The deadline for pitch submissions will be at the end of September, prior to the selection of the delegates for the conference in Toronto. First round submissions will be judged by a panel of QFAC alumni with experience in investment banking, private equity, asset management, and equity research. These professionals will assess the submission’s analytical rigour, aesthetic appeal, and the overall risk-reward attractiveness of the potential investment. Competitors will include both internal and external delegates, with a focus on students in the third year of their undergraduate studies.
Seven finalists will be flown to New York City in late October to present their pitch to a panel of professionals at Greentech Capital Advisors. Competitors will be allowed to update their stock pitch prior to their presentation. All finalists will have their delegate fee waived for QFAC 2016, and the top 10 participants will receive an application bypass for the Conference.
From a delegate perspective, the goal of this competition is to provide an avenue for top undergraduate students to compete and showcase their equity research and stock-pitching skills in front of a panel of distinguished judges from the investment industry. QFAC wants to give delegates the opportunity to apply their knowledge and passion for capital markets. The networking opportunity that the event provides furthers our mission to facilitate the transition of our delegates into careers in finance.
From a conference development perspective, the goal of this initiative is to increase connections between the Smith School of Business and their alumni. By involving Queen’s Commerce Alumni in Toronto and New York through the judging of the competition, this goal can be accomplished. Over the years of organizing QFAC, it has become clear that the alumni are eager to be involved with their alma mater.
