BSAS actively helps to shape policy that promotes fair markets and ethical practices in the investment profession through partnerships, promotion of the CFA charter designation brand, and quality programming. Through our financial literacy
initiative, we have formed alliances with many non-profit organizations to educate the investing public, including Invest in Girls, Year Up, New Sector Alliance, the Massachusetts State Treasurer's Office, and more. We have heightened awareness of our brand and standards to local employers by encouraging asset owners and managers to sign on to the Asset Managers Code of Conduct. We have also done community outreach through our elected officials, including meetings with Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash, and Undersecretary for the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation. Finally, we offer programming to ensure BSAS and its members are adhering to the high level of ethics and standards outlined by CFA Institute.
Putting Investors First
As a local CFA Society, we have been at the forefront of advancing the investment management profession. Each year, we take part in the globally recognized Putting Investors First campaign. For the past two years, Governor Baker has issued proclamations declaring May as Putting Investors First Month
in Massachusetts. We also promote #CFADifference
year-round and offer members access to many tools and information to help their clients make better informed decisions.
