On behalf of CFA Societies in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatchewan and Winnipeg, we would like to invite your organization to be a sponsor of the 2018 CFA Ethics Challenge hosted by CFA Society Winnipeg. The event will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at Investors Group’s head office (9:00 am – 1:30 pm).
The CFA Ethics Challenge embodies the mission of CFA Institute by promoting “the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence.” The competition is designed to increase students’ awareness of the ethical dilemmas they may face as investment management professionals and to better prepare them for the workforce. Teams
consisting of university students from business programs are given an ethics case to study and evaluate. Each team then presents its analysis and recommendations to a judging panel consisting of CFA charterholders. Following a Q&A period with each team, the judges select a winner. The winning team of this regional competition will advance to the National Canadian CFA Ethics Challenge to be held in Vancouver in May 2018.
