A team of Canisius students won the Global Finals at the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute Research Challenge held in Atlanta, GA, on Friday night.  The Canisius team – Matthew Coad ’14, MBA ’16 (team captain), Carl Larsson ’15, Stephen Miller ’15, Kevin Monheim ’15 and Ryan Zimmer ’15 – competed against students from the University of Florida, and two other regional winners, one from EMEA (Kyiv National Economic University in the Ukraine) and one from APAC (Aateneo de Manila University in the Philippines) for the 2015 global title.

More than 4,000 students from 865 universities from around the world competed for a spot in the Global Finals to show they have what it takes to be successful investment management professionals.

“The competition and talent from prestigious universities from across the globe was fierce,” says Richard A. Wall, PhD, vice president for academic affairs and the Canisius team advisor.  “The CFA Challenge is one of the most rigorous and competitive financial competitions in the world.  Our students worked extremely hard and their success speaks to the in-depth, forward-thinking training they receive in equity research at Canisius.”
