This May, qualifying teams will unveil their analysis and recommendations for the final case study to a judging panel comprised of seasoned CFA charterholders.

Judges will grade teams, rewarding those who demonstrate strong critical thinking, innovation, and ethical understanding, and determining who will earn the national title.”

Finalists earned their spots by qualifying through regional competitions that teamed university students from across the country. They will be presented with a case study formulated around a potential ethical dilemma in which they must identify the prominent ethical issues and appropriate responses. Teams are graded on their ability to incorporate their comprehension of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conduct into their analysis and recommendations.
The competition promotes analytical reasoning and ethical decision-making while presenting students with realistic and representative ethical dilemmas they may encounter as they start and progress through their careers. CFA charterholders attest annually to the CFA Institute Code of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conduct, an essential element of their professional commitments, and in building trust with Canadian investors. Mirroring real-life investment industry cases, the challenge encourages forward-thinking and deep reflection on the ethical principles that guide CFA charterholders’ careers.
