In it’s fifth year, a record twenty-four teams from the Global Network of schools competed in the competition. Each year, the Yale International Center for Finance has sponsored the Global Network Investment Competition, a one-of-a-kind contest dedicated to equity investments sourced from top business students around the globe.

Student teams from Global Network schools submitted five investment ideas from the country in which they attend school for a chance to win cash prizes. Each team’s portfolio performance was measured net of the respective local index over a six-month period.
