The CFA Society Pakistan Ethics Challenge was launched in February with much fervor and 17 university teams were registered for the event. However, due to the unforeseen outbreak of COVID-19, the event has been postponed until activities resume at universities.
The Ethics Challenge is designed to increase students' awareness of the ethical dilemmas they may face as future investment management professionals. University Teams of 3 to 4 students from finance, business or other related fields will be given an ethics case to study and evaluate. The participating teams will use the CFA Codes of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conducts as a guiding resource for their analysis.
Each team would present its analysis and recommendations to a panel of judges selected by the CFA Society Pakistan, at the Pakistan Ethics Challenge local competition. A panel of Judges will then select a winner based on the quality of the team's understanding of the ethical issues involved, their recommendations, and the quality of their analysis, presentation, and responses to the judge's questions. The winning team will proceed to the regional finals to compete with winners from other countries in Asia-Pacific.
