Interested in a career in Finance? Fancy yourself as an investment banker? Want to win your share of a $1000 prize pool? Then this competition is for you!

With one of the top investment banks in NZ sponsoring this competition, this is not to be missed. In this year’s Deutsche Craigs Deals Challenge, students have the opportunity to propose a merger, acquisition or demerger for any NZX50 listed company of their choice. In teams of up to 4 students, you can develop business analysis and valuation skills, as well as sit in on a tutorial delivered by an investment banking professional.

This year it will be even easier to develop a great pitch as we will be running several drop-in sessions with a Deutsche Craigs representative present to answer your burning questions!

Finals will be held at the Deutsche Craigs office and include catering and networking with employees. In addition to a $1000 prize pool, the winning team and best speaker will be invited to lunch with the Deutsche Craigs team.
