2017 Press Release - Stock Pitch Competition

Investors of Tomorrow hosted its seventh annual InvestYoung Stock Pitch Competition on November 26th, 2017 at the Downtown Toronto Ivey Tangerine Leadership Centre.

From 50+ stock pitch submissions in the preliminary round, 25 pairs of competitors were invited to compete in the national final round in Toronto. The groups had to prepare and pitch a buy recommendation on a North American equity to judges which consisted of academic professionals and  industry experts. Some of the organizations represented in the judging includes Evercore, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, CIBC, BMO Capital Markets, Onex, and CPPIB. The students went through a rigorous selection process which consisted of slide deck reviews and feedback. During the day, students were also given the opportunity to learn about the Technology industry through a workshop hosted by Maksym Kryworuchko (Curriculum Director). Furthermore, Aisha Sanchez from Evercore, and Rock Zhou from Morgan Stanley spoke about their experiences in finance as well. A special thanks to our long time sponsor - CFA Society Toronto for their generous and continuous support.
