Fostering an ethical culture to gain investor trust

Tuesday 16 November 2021 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This session is brought to you by CFA UK's Ethics Steering Committee

Some companies have extremely high ethical standards, whereas at the other extreme some firms routinely engage in dishonest business practices. The quality of culture impacts profoundly on valuation and investment returns.

This session brought to you by CFA UK's Ethics Steering committee will discuss how analysts can understand ethics, and will also explore how sustainability and a sense of purpose within a firm can give investors assurance of strong ethical conduct.

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
