PwC Valuation Competition 2019

  • Undercoft 101 90 Ilam Road Christchurch New Zealand (map)

The PwC Valuation Competition is back and better than ever!

Grab your team of 2-4 people and value an NZX listed company to go in the draw to win $750 dollars! This year, we also have $150 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place! Even better, the winning team will be flown to Auckland to compete at the national finals against other universities!

Through this competition, you will learn how to navigate and utilise Bloomberg to gain insights and financial data in the UC Trading Room in our pre-competition tutorials! You'll also learn important skills in corporate finance, financial modelling, valuation and analysis!

You will have to value the company using a financial model and then present your analysis to a panel of expert judges from PwC Deals and the CFO of the company itself so it's recommended that one of your team has completed at least ACCT102 and FINC201.

Previous winners have gone onto get internships and graduate jobs in investment banking, corporate finance, fund management and institutional trading at leading organisations in the finance and business world including PwC, UBS, Milford Asset Management and ANZ!
