Announcement - LBA Winner
Recently, the Rotman Student Investment Fund (RSIF) program under RAMA ran its first annual Research Challenge with Letko Brosseau & Associates.
We are proud to announce the winner of the competition is Michael Karp, who will be joining LBA for the summer as a Summer Investment Analyst.
We would also like to recognize the other two finalists, Thao Le and Brandon Thimer. Our three finalists had the opportunity to present in front of the Investment team for LBA, representing RSIF with a world-class output.
The club would encourage its members to following LBA with the following:
As the club continues to roll out new initiatives as part of the reinvigorated Student Fund program, we look forward to continuing the growth of our students in the world of investment research.
"The RAMA Executive Team has done an incredible job providing members like myself with extraordinary opportunities throughout the year.
The recent Letko Brosseau challenge was memorable in that it required me to apply both critical thinking and communication skills in order to succeed.
Additionally, presenting to several investment professionals from a top-tier firm was also a very unique experience. The opportunity has definitely stood out among others during my MBA."
