CFA Institute Research Challenge in Los Angeles
CFA Society Los Angeles is proud to host the CFA Institute Research Challenge in Los Angeles. This year’s subject company is Edwards Lifesciences.
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 3:00pm on Friday, February 22nd in the Bernards Room at the Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. Networking and cocktail hour begins at 5:30pm. A component of this event that will be of interest to students and CFALA members is our Career Chat presentations. The speakers will give brief presentations during the networking portion of the event and discuss their diverse career paths.
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. Five universities from the Los Angeles area will compete in the 2019 competition. The final research reports and presentations will be evaluated locally and the winning team will advance to the Americas Regional Final in New York, NY, in April.
