Sustainable Investing 2 - 1140x346

London Business School (LBS) MBA2025 students Chen Cui, Ricardo Lewysohn CFA, Rachel Jonckheere CPA, and Hoang Anh (Zoey) Nguyen took the top prize in the latest Sustainable Investing Challenge organised by Neuberger Berman.

LBS’s Team Vertiv saw off stiff competition from Baruch College Zicklin School of Business, Columbia Business School, Harvard Business School, Northwestern University - Kellogg School of Management, NYU Stern School of Business and The Wharton School to win the competition.

The theme of the sustainable challenge was focused on Artificial Intelligence. Students were given the opportunity to work with mentors from Neuberger Berman to identify publicly listed equity investments with business objectives that are aligned with the theme and that are expected to generate positive financial performance (as a dual objective). 

Speaking about their delight at winning the competition, Team Vertiv said:

“Taking part in the competition was a great experience and we are delighted that we were able to win first place representing LBS. Sustainability and AI are at the forefront of business evolution, and we are extremely proud to have identified a company which is helping to advance the AI evolution in a sustainable manner.”
