About the Competition

Sponsored by Overlook Investments Ltd., Lau Chor Tak Institute of Global Economics and Finance (IGEF) is organising the third Value Investment Proposal Competition (“the Competition”) in March 2022, offering undergraduate students a unique experience of learning value investment techniques from top industry experts and applying such knowledge in a competition setting. Participants are expected to attend a series of lectures and then submit an investment proposal; winning teams will receive cash prizes of up to HK$60,000.  

The Competition is open to all full-time students studying an undergraduate degree programme at a local tertiary institution for the 2021-2022 academic year. Students from any discipline are welcome. Participants must apply as teams of up to three members, where at least one member must be a full-time undergraduate student currently enrolled at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Each participant can enter the Competition as a member of only one team.

Interested teams should register for the Competition by completing the application form (available here) once per team by 10 March 2022.
