CFA Society Los Angeles is proud to host the CFA Institute Research Challenge in Los Angeles. This year’s subject company is Air Lease.  

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 1:45pm on Friday, February 16th in the Marshall School of Business – Fertitta Hall, room JFF236.

Networking and cocktail hour begins at 6:00pm held at the University Club in the Scriptorium located at 705 W. 34th Street Los Angeles, CA 90089.

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. Nine teams from seven universities from the Los Angeles area will compete in the 2024 competition. The final research reports and presentations will be evaluated locally and the winning team will advance to the Regional Competition, and the winner from that will advance to the Americas Regional Final, and then onwards to the Global Final.

Please come out and support these future charterholders, network with other society members and, if you are an alumni of one of the participating schools, you can cheer on your alma mater! This event is hosted for all CFALA members!
