The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students work in teams to research and analyze a publicly traded company, and each team writes a research report on its assigned company with a buy, sell, or hold recommendation. Teams that progress to Local, Regional and Global Finals must present and defend their analysis to a panel of industry professionals. Students learn from experienced industry experts and peers from the world's top business schools.
"We are very excited to represent the University of Waterloo, CFA Society Toronto and CFA Society Ottawa in this year's Americas Regional Finals. We are extremely grateful for the support and mentorship provided by our advisors and look forward to preparing for the next stage of the competition." said Rudder Zhang, University of Waterloo, Team Captain.
