CFA Society of the Netherlands celebrates 'Putting Investors First' Month with sounding the gong
Jacco Heemskerk, Vice President of the Society of Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) in the Netherlands, sounds the gong to celebrate the 'Putting Investors First' Month. This marks the second year of this annual awareness campaign and builds on the success of May 2014, when activities took place in 58 cities globally by member societies representing more than 60,000 investment professionals. The initiative aims to unite investment professionals in a commitment to place investor interests above all others.
Throughout the month, many of the organization’s 144 member societies worldwide will host local events and call attention to the needs and rights of investors by endorsing the Statement of Investor Rights, a list of ten rights that any investor should expect from financial service providers.
“We aspire to build and lead the investment management profession; to do this we must continue to stand together for what is right, and in investors’ best interests. All investors have the right to be served by professionals who act as stewards of their savings,” said Jacco Heemskerk. “By supporting Putting Investors First Month, we want to inspire our community to make real impact and foster a market environment where investors can thrive.”
