Golden Gate University Investment Research Club Wins Regional Competition

A student team representing the Golden Gate University Investment Research Club (IRC) has won the regional CFA Institute Research Challenge, prevailing over graduate schools across Northern California. The competition required teams to create a written report and deliver a group presentation to a panel of financial services professionals.

“The GGU Student Government Association and Sandra Jimenez, Assistant Director of Student Life at GGU, always gave the IRC strong backing and encouragement,” says William Xu (center, above). “Finance Chair Andrea Anthony also showed tremendous support to the IRC and dropped by during one of the meetings to give us a pep talk. I also cannot say enough about the Professor Kaczorowski, who selflessly dedicated his personal time and patiently advised and mentored us.”

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is a world-wide competition. GGU’s team, made up of students in the Master of Science in Finance program, will advance to the next round in Seattle to face competitors from North and South America.
