Throughout the year, Bond Investment Group runs several competitions that are aimed to practically engage students in the areas of business and finance.
The Pitch Competition 2017
The Pitch Competition is an annual competition aimed at providing students with a working example of a Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) transaction, as well as the opportunity to pitch in a professional environment. Students compete individually to initially analyse a project by performing a Discounted Cashflow Analysis and, in the final round, are required to make recommendations to a panel of judges based on three potential acquisition targets.
To register for this competition or for further details, please contact the BIG team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pitch Competition 2016
The 2016 Pitch Competition required competitors in the preliminary round to determine the best company for Metcash Limited (MTS) to acquire out of three companies provided. The finals required finalists to also consider another company of their choice within the ASX 300 that would be a suitable acquisition. The decision had to be based on qualitative and quantitative factors requiring a DCF model and a comparables analysis for the valuation.
2016 Winners: Joshua Lane & Christian Whitfield.
