AbstractI participated in the CFA Institute Research Challenge as a part of my senior thesis. The Challenge involves researching a publically traded company and writing an equity research report on that company. This year, four other students and I researched Western Alliance Bancorporation. We recommended a "Sell" rating. Concerning the competition, despite receiving high scores, we were not given the opportunity to advance past the local round. Still, we produced a high quality product while utilizing all the resources of the University and Eller. Overall, I found this experience both successful and rewarding.
