Program Description:
Cheer on four teams of students from area universities as they compete in the CFA Institute Research Challenge hosted by CFA Society Chicago. The competition kicked off Nov. 8 with nine universities participating; and is now down to the final four teams. Listen as the teams present their research on AptarGroup Inc. (NYSE: ATR) to a panel of judges who are CFA Charterholders and experts in equity research. Teams also developed a written report of fundamental company analysis based on a sell-side or an independent research analyst perspective of Aptar Group, Inc.

The first, second and third place teams will receive various prizes sponsored by CFA Chicago. The local level winning team will continue on to the regional competition in Toronto, Canada to be held March 20-21. Regional champions will then vie for the global title on April 13 in London.
