Tokyo based, equity research house Koyal Group today announced it will hold a competition open to all unqualified student analysts worldwide, the winner of which will be rewarded with an internship placement at Koyal Group in Tokyo.
Jun. 13, 2013 - TOKYO, Japan -- The competition entries are to be judged by a board of Koyal Group’s resident analysts led by Head of Analysis Mr Nathan Andrews, who said “as we have not given a specific company for entrants to review, judging the competition could be difficult as some aspects are difficult to quantify, but as a result of this approach we hope to receive entries from many post-graduate students detailing the financials of strong companies we don’t currently have on our own radar, which we would then aim to follow up”.
Chief Executive Officer at Koyal Group Mr. Edward Neilson said “Most importantly the competition provides a platform for all those analysts who have not yet completed their studies to find immediate placement in a working environment from which they may launch their career”.
Mr. Stephen Cole, Director of Private Equity at Koyal Group said “For Koyal Group the competition will cost very little with the exception of man hours required forth review and judgment process, but may ultimately yield a wealth of valuable information, and at least one talented potential future employee. I’m looking forward to seeing what the student population can produce.”
