Congratulations! Top Ranked Finish in CFA® Finance Forecasting Competition

Raskob Kambourian Financial Advisors would like to congratulate Phillip B. Kaiser, CFA, CMT, CFP® on his outstanding performance in the Financial Forecasting Challenge hosted by the CFA® Societies of the Western U.S. on the forecasting site Good Judgment® Open (www.gjopen.com).  The objective of the yearlong competition was to accurately predict the outcome of economic and financial market events over multiple time frames.  Phillip finished in 8th place overall out of 5,395 forecasters and in 1st place out of 244 CFA® Charterholders participating in the challenge (1st place in Arizona – Tucson & Phoenix).

Reflecting on the results, Phillip noted, “I really enjoyed the challenge.  It was a lot of fun.  But for me what it really represents is a validation of the work I am ultimately doing on behalf of our clients.  My job is to stay on top of economic and financial market events to ensure our clients achieve their financial objectives.  When dealing with the economy or financial markets, few things are certain.  When times are good, I don’t get too happy.  When times are challenging, I don’t get too upset.  Objectivity, modesty, and the proper perspective are necessary to successfully navigate the financial markets.”
