Why volunteer with CFA UK

As a society volunteer, you are directly helping to further our mission and shape the future of the investment profession in a positive and meaningful way. All our activities, in one way or another, serve to build a better investment profession.

As we move forward over the next three years we aim to demonstrate the valuable contribution our profession makes to the economy and wider society. We want to better explain that value to policymakers, to employers and institutions operating within the investment space, and, most importantly, to our clients.

EDUCATION Education is the foundation of professional competence. We develop future and current investment professionals through supporting the IMC.
ETHICS & PROFESSIONALISM Setting the highest ethical standards and advocating for professional excellence are activities that ultimately benefit society by improving both investor protections and investor outcomes.
ENGAGEMENT Explaining the role and value of the investment profession is in members' interests and in clients' interests.
