Stock Pitch Competition

UAIC is excited to present the annual Stock Pitch Competition!

This competition is for students of all levels, from all degrees and backgrounds. It involves teams of 2-4 people selecting and analysing a stock and then presenting a buy/hold/sell (TBA) pitch to a panel of judges. If you have never competed in a stock pitch competition before or have never looked at a stock, we have a division to cater for you with our First Timers division.

Stock Pitch Competition is a great opportunity for you to see whether a career in finance is for you. Additionally, Stock Pitch is great experience if you want to go into Investment Banking!

Preliminary rounds for both divisions are (TBA). The top three teams from each division will then get the opportunity to pitch before a panel of industry professionals. Final rounds will be held later in the week.

This semester we have two divisions as follows:
- First Timers Division - a first timers is defined as a student who has not done a Stock Pitch Competition before and is not a past member or current senior analyst of the Investment Committee, to be in this division the entire team must comprise of first-timers.
- Open Division - All other teams will be automatically entered into the open division.
