Four teams from Global Network for Advanced Management schools have been selected as finalists for the Global Network Investment Competition’s Security Analysis Prize.

The finalists are Boom and Pink Capital, both from School of Management, Fudan University; Alpha-Omega Investments from NUS Business School; and Incatraz Investments from INCAE Business School. The winner and runner-up for the Security Analysis Prize will be chosen on March 1, based on the teams’ virtual presentations before a panel of judges. During a videoconference, each team will present the case for an investment portfolio assembling stocks from its home country. Winners are chosen based the quality of their investment thesis and research, how they fare during the question and answer session, and their presentation skills.

This year’s judges include James Chanos, the founder and managing partner of Kynikos Associates LP; John Glass, managing director in equity research at Morgan Stanley; Rob Pohley, portfolio manager and founder of Samlyn Capital; and Eddie Tam, CEO and CIO of Central Asset Investments.

The top team will take $3,500 home, while the runner-up will receive $1,500.

The Global Network Investment Competition continues until April 30, when the team with the best returns on its portfolio—defined as the gross return of the portfolio less the performance of the applicable country’s capital-weighted stock market index—will be awarded the Performance Prize. Twenty three teams from 15 Global Network schools are competing.
