The KSBL team comprised of Muddasir Ali Soomro, Hassan Yousuf, Muhammad Mobin Jabbar, Asad Abdul Muhammad (MBA 2014) and Kashif Azam Bachani (MBA 2015), who have now qualified to represent Pakistan at Asia Pacific Regional Final, to be held at Singapore.

The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students gain real-world experience as they assume the role of a research analyst and are tested on their ability to value a stock, write an initiation-of-coverage report, and present their recommendations.
We wish the team the best of luck for the Regional Final of the CFA Institute Research Challenge2014!
