Statement of intent:
I believe that the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct, followed by other standards and rules developed by the Institute, set a very high and objective level of ethical standards across the investment profession. This is exactly the field where the most effort of the investment community is needed in order to recover trust and confidence damaged during the 2008-2009 financial crisis. By promoting fair dealing and efficient markets we can not only improve credibility with clients, but also perfect collaboration among ourselves. As a Board Member I would like to develop and implement efficient ways to promote the Code and Standards among representatives of regulators and other participants of the financial market in Russia.
