FAST Financial Modelling Competition

For future business/investment analysts, financial analysts and research analysts.


InVhestia is bridging the gap between theory and practice by educating university students on what is required of them in the current job market. Being a corporate and project finance advisory firm, we believe that graduates ought to know the latest trends in the market that will give them an edge as they look to fit into the job market. For this reason, InVhestia has launched the fifth inter-university FAST Standard Modelling Competition! This year is special because it is open for students across Africa.

The purpose of this competition is to sensitize future (and current) business/investment analysts, financial analysts and research analysts not only how to model and the importance of standardisation. Read more about previous years here
