2021 CFA Society Toronto & CFA Society Ottawa Research Challenge


Hosted By: CFA Society Toronto
Level:​ General
Format: Online (Please note that all times are Eastern Time)


CFA Society Toronto and CFA Society Ottawa are hosting the 12th Annual CFA Institute Research Challenge local competition. Every year, several universities and college-sponsored teams enter to participate in the preliminary portion of the competition. Each team researches and prepares a written report on a Subject Company designated by the local host. This year’s Subject Company is Empire Company Limited. Empire’s key businesses are food retailing, through wholly-owned subsidiary Sobeys Inc., and related real estate.

The preliminary round consists of a blind process in which the identities of the universities are unknown to the graders and judges based both on the written reports and presentation scores (50% written report and 50% oral presentation). The teams that receive the top four scores will be selected as finalists.

The top four scoring teams are announced and will move onto the final presentation round and then, the winning team will advance to the sub-regional competition coordinated by the CFA Institute on 15-16 April, 2021.

Who Should Attend:

The Research Challenge competition is open to students, friends, and family of the competition participants and anyone interested in seeing some stellar equity research. The awards ceremony is open to award winners, and of course, friends, family and colleagues of those individuals being recognized.
