Topic: Growth Investing

Program Description:
Organic growth has been hard to come by for many industries in this economic recovery. Many firms have used mergers and acquisitions to bolster revenue and earnings. Firms that are able to consistently take market share and increase their footprint are at an advantage in the slow-growth environment prevalent in the United States. Join us on April 18, 2014, as we discuss companies across all sectors that have promising growth prospects.

The Investment Exchange Forum is a stock-picking meeting of 10-15 CFA Chicago members. Each meeting features actionable ideas by presenting volunteers and a lively discussion of the topic at hand. The IEF is both an opportunity to learn how others present investment ideas concisely and a chance to practice stock pitches. In order to keep the quality of the stock picks as high as possible, we encourage attendance by members who are actively involved in investment management.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring actionable ideas to the forum for presentation.

Attendance will be limited to 15 members - first-come, first-served. Please remember to bring your own lunch.
