Fundacao Getulio Vargas University of Sao Paulo, Brazil Wins Americas' 2009 CFA Challenge

Congratulations to Fundacao Getulio Vargas University of Sao Paulo (Brazil). They are with winners of the 2009 Americas' CFA Global Investment Research Challenge.

The Marquette University AIM team did a marvelous job with their presentation of Badger Meter; however, the competition was stiff and the team for FGV rang the bell to open the NYSE on Friday, March 20.

Thanks to the Milwaukee and Madison CFA Societies for sponsoring the Wisconsin Regional Investment Research Challenge - and thanks to the CFA Institute for a wonderful event in New York City.

The AIM students met and mingled with all of the other students from the 15 universities at the competition -- and partied with the Brazilians following their victory! It was an excellent experience and we look forward to competing again next year.
