In front of a panel of leading financial services professionals, a student team from NUI Galway retained the prestigious CFA Society Ireland 'Global Investment Research Challenge' title. Having won the competition in 2014 analysing Ryanair, this year's team took home the trophy with their analysis of Kingspan. The Challenge offers students a unique hands-on opportunity to learn stock market research and analysis skills from industry experts and to compete with peers from the world’s top finance programmes. The NUI Galway team comprised four students from the M.Econ.Sc. International Finance degree and one B.Comm. student. They saw off competition from University College Cork, University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin and Queens University Belfast. The NUI Galway team now proceeds to the European Middle-East Africa (EMEA) finals in Amsterdam in early April.
