Are you being investigated!!!
Saw someone looked at my LinkedIn profile and their profile indicates “Compliance Connection at CFA Institute” ..
So I was curious and did a search for that… and came up with:
Have you ever wondered how the professional conduct of our 150,000+ members around the world is monitored?
One way is through Compliance Connection, a global network of CFA Institute members who volunteer to actively monitor local news sources for information related to professional misconduct. Formed by the Professional Conduct team, CFA Institute, Compliance Connection currently includes more than 270 charterholders in 83 markets who monitor more than 300 sources. Of these sources, many of which were previously unavailable to CFA Institute,120 are not in English. So, using this global network of volunteers vastly extends the reach of our monitoring efforts, and strengthens our ability to protect the reputation of CFA Institute, our designations, and ultimately, our members and societies.
After one year in operation, the work of Compliance Connection has resulted in 41 new investigations of active members or candidates. It has also created 40 new “watch matters,” which locks a lapsed member’s or candidate’s account and sets up a notification to Professional Conduct if the individual tries to renew or register for an exam.
The monitoring simply involves the volunteer regularly reading his chosen source and looking for information about possible industry-related misconduct. When an article or information about a potential transgression is found, the volunteer forwards that information to the Professional Conduct team for further research.
And it looks like they earn credits for taking down candidates and charterholders. Yikes, theres’ a community of bounty hunters out there! Maybe they are recruiting me? Or maynbe I’m a target?
