Capital Youth Finance Symposium



Our mission is to host a stimulating and rewarding event for pre-college students who are interested in finance. The event will last between 2 and 5 hours, featuring presentations of student projects and a competitive challenge.  Through this event, we aim to equip students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their future academic and professional endeavors, as well as showcase their achievements and potential to prospective employers and colleges.


The conference will provide students with an opportunity to showcase and learn more about business and finance. 


Students will be gathered in a hall where school clubs will hold presentations, discussing what they have been working on or presenting research projects. Additionally, clubs who have registered to hold a workshop will be given a room to host their activity. Invited guests will give talks at the Young Professionals Panel. Before the closing ceremony, there will be a mocktail hour with refreshments where students will be given an opportunity to network with peers and showcase individual projects. 


With the requirement of participation from all clubs attending, CYFS presents an opportunity to students attending and assists them in learning about business and finance. After the stock pitch competition, students will receive feedback from the judges. Furthermore, during the asynchronous presentations, peers will be given a chance to gain a deeper understanding of finance from one another. 

COMPETITION COMPONENTS (Link to Stock Competition)

The Stock Pitch Competition program aims to equip students with the necessary skills for successful participation in stock pitch events. Students form teams of 1-4 members and analyze a chosen stock, creating a comprehensive report with sections covering business description, industry analysis, competitive positioning, financial analysis, valuation, risks, and investment thesis. The teams then present their findings to industry professionals and peers through a PowerPoint or slide presentation, incorporating visuals and delivering a 10-minute oral presentation followed by a 5-minute Q&A session. Participating schools select their top two teams to represent them in the main competition, where cash prizes and trophies are awarded to the first, second, and third-place winners
