The purpose of the Challenge is to encourage high-quality investment research, unearth top investing talent, and level the playing field so that lesser-known (but equally-brilliant) investors have the opportunity to present in front of the same high-profile Value Investing Congress audience as legendary investors such as Leon Cooperman, David Einhorn and Bill Ackman.
"The goal of the Value Investing Congress is to bring the best and brightest on stage in an environment where variant perceptions can thrive," said John L. Schwartz, Co-Founder and CEO of the Value Investing Congress. "This contest will help our Congress attendees to capitalize on unique perspectives and hear from investors whose ideas rose to the top in a heavily-contested competition."
"We were humbled and thrilled by the turnout in this year's contest," said Divya Narendra, CEO/Co-Founder of SumZero, Inc. "Both the volume and the quality of the research submitted was even better than last year's terrific entries. It's clear to us that there is a tremendous amount of analytical talent in this industry, particularly within funds whose names you normally would not encounter in the mainstream media. We're excited to hear the grand prize winner present at the Congress in September and we are eagerly looking forward to next year's Challenge."
The Grand Prize winner will be announced at the 9th Annual New York Value Investing Congress at Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, in the Time Warner Center on September 17th.
