Well done to the second year Business School students from our campus in Qatar, who came 1st runners up in the penultimate of the CFA Institute Research Challenge. The team comprised of; Ahmed Abbas, Reem Al Ansari, Jana Hamdach and Khaleel Wadi.
The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual, global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. The students competed against teams from Northumbria University / Qatar Finance and Business Academy and Qatar University. The CFA Society Doha, was honoured to have as Mr. Rashid Bin Ali Al Mansoori, CEO of Qatar Stock Exchange as Chief Guest at the event.
The local Research Challenge will culminate at the finale next week, where student teams will present their equity research on QNB Group's stock with a buy, sell or a hold recommendation to an independent panel of judges.
The winning team will represent Qatar at the regional finals Switzerland (Zurich) and potentially at the global competition in USA (New York).
