CFA Ethics Challenge



The CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge is designed to increase students’ awareness of the ethical dilemmas and issues they may face as investment management professionals. Teams consisting of students from finance or business programs (usually from the CFA Institute’s University Affiliation Program) are given an ethics case to analyze and evaluate. Each team then presents its analysis and recommendations, to a panel of judges, selected by the host CFA Society. Following a question-and-answer period after each team’s presentation, the judges then select a winner. To determine the winning team, the judges use a grading rubric that is based on the quality of the team’s understanding of the ethical issues involved, their recommendations, and the quality of their analysis, presentation, and responses to the judges’ questions.

3-5 students will be selected to participate in the CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge
