UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA
RESEARCH CHALLENGE TEAM IN
FINAL FOUR OF THE AMERICAS REGIONAL FINALS
Congratulations to the University of Alberta, who made it to the final four of the 2014 Americas Regional Finals in Denver in March. 425 teams from Canada, United States, Central and South America competed in their local challenge to qualify in this premier investment research competition.
The CFA® Investment Research Challenge is the world's premier investment research competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst and are tested on their ability to value a stock, write an initiation-of-coverage report, and present their recommendations.
"It is an amazing accomplishment and I am extremely proud of the team," says Gary Smith, Executive Professor of Finance, who has coached the team all six years. "Congratulations Curtis Boulanger, Brian Lees, Fraser Marr, Rayhaan Nazarali, and Nathan Wood. Thanks also to Industry Mentor Keith Walton of AIMCo and the CFA® Edmonton chapter."
