Marquette's AIM program has been a CFA Program University Partner since 2006. Students in the program aspire to become a CFA charterholder.
The principles and guidance presented in the CFA Institute's Standards of Practice Handbook form the basis for the CFA's self-regulatory program that seeks to maintain the highest professional standards among investment practitioners. A clear understanding of the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct (both found in the Handbook) should allow the practitioner to identify and appropriately resolve ethical conflicts.
The eleventh edition of the Standards of Practice Handbook contains the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct with related guidance and examples illustrating application of the Standards in the day-to-day professional activities of members and candidates. The eleventh edition guidance and provisions are effective 1 July 2014 and can be downloaded for free at: http://www.cfapubs.org/toc/ccb/2014/2014/4.
