CFA Institute is a global community of investment professionals working to build an investment management industry where investors’ interests come first, financial markets function at their best, and economies grow. We are driven by the belief that lasting economic growth depends on trust, competence, and transparency in financial markets, and we know that it must be led by professionals who are ethically centered and professionally trained. In short, we are here to lead, support, and connect all who want to create a better investment industry.
Thriving financial markets require a culture in which investment professionals place trust, transparency, and investors’ interests first—no matter what the incentives. That’s why a commitment to professional ethics that advance fair and efficient markets is at the core of all we do at CFA Institute. We advocate for financial market integrity and develop and promote ethical and professional standards, such as the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) and the Asset Manager Code of Professional Conduct™, and our members uphold our industry-leading Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.
Our growing community of members and societies represents the foremost professional body in investment management. They embody and amplify our mission to lead the investment management profession globally. Societies play a critical role in localizing our global mission in the cities and regions where they practice, fostering professional standards of ethics and integrity as well as nurturing relationships with members, candidates, and stakeholders. Together, we aim to put investors’ interests first and to safeguard the financial system.
