CFA Institute Research Challenge in Los Angeles
Friday, February 22th, 2013 - 2:30pm

Dear Members,

CFA Society Los Angeles is proud to host the CFA Institute Research Challenge in Los Angeles.  This year’s subject company is Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE: JEC) www.jacobs.com

We invite you all to attend this great event to watch graduate and undergraduate students present their analysis of a local company to a panel of judges and industry professionals such as yourselves.  The students put a great deal of work into their written reports and presentations  and will benefit even more from presenting to an enthusiastic audience!  The presentations begin at 2:30pm on Friday, February 22nd at Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.  Networking and cocktail hour begins at 5:00.    

The CFA Institute Research Challenge offers students the unique opportunity to learn from leading industry experts and compete with peers from the world’s top finance programs. This annual educational initiative promotes best practices in equity research among the next generation of analysts through hands-on mentoring and intensive training in company analysis and presentation skills. Seven universities from the Los Angeles area will compete in the 2012 competition. The final research reports and presentations will be evaluated locally and the winning team will advance to the Americas Regional Final in Toronto, Canada in March.  If you are interested in additional information on the challenge, click here to view  the official website.
