Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable investing Challenge 2019 for Graduate Students Worldwide ($USD15,000 & Funded to Pitch in Hong Kong & Los Angeles, USA).

Date limite d'inscription: Février 1st 2019

Le Défi de l'investissement durable Kellogg-Morgan Stanley seeks to identify outstanding proposals offering novel investment strategies to meet some of the most pressing global challenges ahead.

The Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge harnesses the power of capital markets and student creativity to create positive impact in a world of perpetual resource scarcity and continued population growth. Every year, the Kellogg School of Management and Morgan Stanley partner to host the challenge where teams of graduate students from around the globe develop and pitch creative financial approaches to tackle our world’s most pressing challenges.

Contestants must propose and defend a strategy that uses finance and investment tools rather than an operating enterprise to address an environmental or societal challenge. The competition is an opportunity to apply core finance principles to target the economic, social and environmental challenges that drive the field of sustainable investing. Pitches might focus on areas like water, energy, food, social mobility, climate change, education or healthcare, among others. Contestants are encouraged to apply the entire spectrum of investment tools, styles and asset classes.

The Challenge seeks to identify the next generation of sustainable finance practitioners, connect emerging leaders with industry professionals, and foster even greater emphasis on sustainability at graduate schools around the world.
