In the National Bank Stock Pitch Competition, teams of two choose publicly traded Canadian firms in various sectors and tasked with creating a Buy, Sell, or Hold recommendation. Teams are faced with the challenge of finding relevant comparables, analyzing macroeconomic trends, and understanding industry and company-specific trends.
The top teams in each sector are selected to present to a panel of National Bank judges. Following the event, all participants are invited for a cocktail reception to network with the National Bank team. The top 3 teams are also given the opportunity to connect with National Bank staff over dinner at a later date.
