A group of four students from the Telfer School of Management has been named as the winners of the 2018 CFA Societies Canada Ethics Challenge. They received their awards at the Terminal City Club in Vancouver, BC.
There was a challenge given to the students to carry out an analyzation and evaluation of a case study to find out the dilemmas on the CFA Institute Code of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conduct. This was done with a view to increasing the professionalism and the knowledge about the budding finance professionals.
The Chair and President Council Representative, CFA Societies Canada, Clayton Gall, said that the mandate of the CFA Societies Canada is to make sure that finance professionals are geared up to quickly find out and solve all the ethical issues at work.
The finalists were asked to assemble in Vancouver for the final competition. The winning team had to offer their best analysis on a new case study to the judging panel of charter holders of the CFA. They also were asked to take part in a question and answer session. The participants took three hours to complete the analysis.
Each of the members of the winning team received $500 as well as an award from CFA Societies Canada.
