LSF Challenge 2015

 The LSF Challenge is a case study competition where students work on a real-life case focusing on investment advisory for a wealthy client. In this competition, students are exposed to various finance topics such as portfolio management, estate planning, alternative investments, asset structuring, and philanthropy, amongst others.

The winning team ‘AB Wealth’ composed of two EDHEC Students and one student from WU Vienna, did an excellent proposal and the renowned jury of professionals awarded them the first prize.

The competition was fierce with teams from Imperial College, Cass Business School, Luxembourg School of Finance, University of Tilburg and more. The LSF Challenge was sponsored by major financial players such as Private Banking Group Luxembourg, Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, Banque de Luxembourg, ING, BCEE, Deloitte, Lombard and the Chamber of Commerce.

“Once again EDHEC students did a great job in representing their school abroad. I myself around 5 years ago won a similar case study competition in New York, and I was very proud to raise the name of EDHEC even higher.” Arlind Lushi (Edhec 2011) co-founder of the LSF Challenge.
