CFA Challenge team makes the North Carolina finals.

For the fourth year running, NC State’s CFA Research Challenge Team made the finals in Greensboro.   To get to the finals, they beat out several prominent schools in the state (including two blue schools!).

The team had to write a research report on Haynes Brands NYSE:HBI, and present their findings to a panel of professional money managers.   Richard Warr (Professor of Finance and Department Head) was the faculty advisor and Ron Elmer MBA, CFA served as the industry advisor.

The team consisted of Clinton Coffey, Garima Bansal, Jay Ledbetter, Kristen Martin and Michael Martinez.  All are students in the Jenkins MBA program.
