The Ben Graham Centre for Value Investing (Europe) holds an annual Graduate Student Stock Picking Competition. Participating teams compete for cash prizes, as well as complimentary attendance to the Value Investing Conference in Athens, Greece. These events provide a forum for participants to hear from distinguished keynote speakers in investment management along with an opportunity to network with prominent value investors. The key objective of the Competition is to expose the participating students to the value investing approach of stock analysis and to spread the word of value investing.

Our Graduate Student Stock Picking Competition is different from others in that,

  1. It focuses on the value investing approach to stock analysis and follows the principles of value investing as taught by Benjamin Graham and practiced by some of the most successful investors of our time.
  2. Valuation reports are judged for the quality of their analysis ahead of time and the teams who write the top three reports are invited to Athens, Greece to present another stock valuation to a panel of top global value investors, who determine the winning group.
  3. Significant awards are given to the top three groups.
