CFA Institute takes its self-imposed standards of conduct seriously. Members are required to adhere to the highest standards of professional conduct by pledging to uphold the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct. Violations of these agreements are taken seriously and can result in suspension of an individual’s Charter.
If an investigation determines a violation has occurred, a disciplinary sanction is recommended. The member and/or candidate may accept the recommended sanction or proceed to a hearing panel.
