The mission of the Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee is contributing to:

  • The exchange and development of knowledge of the sector in the Netherlands

Contact

If you are interested to join this active committee, please contact Berg de Bleecker, CFA for more information.

Behavioral Economics Committee

The Behavioral Economics Committee is focussing on the crossroads between economics and psychology. In the financial world, we're witnessing fear, greed and herd behaviour on a daily basis. It remains to be seen if investors make rational decisions. The committee tries to gain knowledge in this field of economics, with events and publications. The committee has a meeting every two months, discusses recent publications and invites interesting speakers. 

At the moment the committee counts 11 members, and we're open to fresh ideas. If you're interested in participating in this active committee, contact Wim Zwanenburg (06-42350938).

Women in Investment Management (WIM) Committee

CFA Societies worldwide have undertaken initiatives with the aim of improving investor outcomes by encouraging gender diversity in the investment management profession. Concrete goals are to

  • Increase the number of women who join the profession
  • Retain women in the profession and influence culture from within
  • Create demand for diversity as an industry imperative

Also in the Netherlands members started a WIM committee with inspiring events and initiatives. The committee is currently looking to recruit both a chairman as well as new committee members. In addition to participating in local activities, committee members would also be able to participate in the international CFA Institute Women in Investment Management Network.

If you are interested in becoming chair of our WIM Committee or want to join as a member, please contact us via email.

Volunteers wanted for the CFA Research Challenge

The CFA Institute Research Challenge owes its success to the invaluable input of volunteers who serve as committee members, mentors and report graders.
