BBA student team comes third in financial planner competition


A team of four BBA students, Keith Cheng (Finance, Year 3), Sky Wang (Accounting, Year 3), Steven Yiu (Applied Economics, Year 3) and Jack Yu (Accounting, Year 3), recently won the third prize in the University Student category of the SCMP/IFPHK Financial Planner Awards 2015. 
The winning team expressed their sincere gratitude to their coaches Dr Astrophel Choo, Lecturer of the Department of Finance and Decision Sciences, and Mr Lam Sui-wah, Teaching Consultant of the Department of Management, for their guidance throughout the competition. 
Steven Yiu said: “Dr Astrophel Choo taught us to think from different perspectives when looking at a case. We applied the knowledge and skills that we had learnt in the classroom to provide recommendations covering multiple angles for the case study in the competition which impressed the panel of judges and led to our success.” Keith Cheng thanked Mr Lam Sui-wah for spending great efforts in polishing their presentation skills, which is a life-long asset that will stand them in good stead.
Jointly organised by the Institute of Financial Planners of Hong Kong (IFPHK) and South China Morning Post, the Awards, in its 11th year, is an annual signature event in the industry covering the three major sectors of Banking, Independent Financial Advisory and Insurance. The Awards aim to recognise the outstanding performance of financial planning practitioners who excel in their professional skills and uphold industry best practices. The University Student category was established to recognise university students who show impressive promise in the financial planning arena.
