These exclusive mentorship opportunities will give you private access to investment training and workshops typically reserved for finance and investment professionals themselves! In addition, you will be paired with a finance professional for further grooming and training. After the 6-month mentorship, successful candidates will be offered internship / graduate opportunities in 2017.
What do I have to do at a stock pitch competition?
With your team, decide on one stock that is investment-worthy, based on a pre-determined list of stocks, and prepare a 5-minute presentation on your chosen stock and why your team picked the stock. You will receive the pre-determined list of stocks on 1 November 2016.
During the session on 1 November 2016, you will also learn from investment professionals (Lion Global Investors & Amundi Asset Management) on the basics of investment and a career in the investment industry.
On 5 November 2016, you will present to a panel of investment professionals why they should invest in that stock, followed by a 5-minute Q & A session.
VALIANT 2016 is an excellent opportunity to understand how investment professionals invest – the principles behind their stock picking and principles of wealth building. Created for participants who are interested in an investment career or want to make money for themselves through investment and wealth preservation, VALIANT 2016 will provide you the insight and basic training in the investment industry.
In addition, winning teams will be awarded cash prizes and mentorship opportunities with investment professionals. Truly, an experience that will give you a head-start in your career and investment journey!
