Altrum Sponsors The National Investment Banking ConferenceMay 23, 2016
Altrum is proud to be NIBC’s deal toy and corporate gift sponsor for a second year.
Founded in 2007, the National Investment Banking Competition & Conference (NIBC) is an established organization that brings together industry professionals and students from over 100 universities. In 2016, the competition attracted over 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students from top schools across the globe.
NIBC’s objective in designing the case and competition process is to provide students with an authentic investment banking experience. The organizing team works closely with the case committee to create a competition that focuses on real-life transactions involving publicly listed companies. Participation in NIBC will provide hands-on experience and insight into the daily responsibilities of both junior and senior investment bankers. These responsibilities include analysis of financial data, running scenarios in financial models, evaluating structural alternatives against client parameters, creating pitch books, and presenting to senior management. The competition culminates in a live pitch by finalist teams to Managing Directors of leading North American investment banks, including CIBC, RBC Capital markets, Espresso Capital and Scotia Capital.
In parallel, NIBC offer participants the opportunity to learn from the best in their field through a series of keynote speakers. This year, attendees had the honor to hear about the experiences of one of Canada’s most influential leader, Peter Brown, founder and former chairman of Cannacord Genuity, as well as Noah Wintroub, youngest banker to be named vice chairman at JP Morgan in the firm’s history.
With the generous contribution and participation of 43 industry firms, NIBC offers an unparalleled opportunity for students to learn about all aspects of the capital markets, while connecting them to job opportunities and prominent professionals from across the globe.
We would like to congratulate Duke University’s graduate division team for bringing home the grand prize, and their well-deserved Altrum deal toy!
