Uphold high standards, professionalism – CFA to financial analysts


The Managing Director of Europe, Middle East and Africa at the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute, Mr Gary Baker, has charged chartered financial analysts in Ghana to be ethical in carrying out their duties.

He wants members of the organisation to ensure good corporate governance in their various fields of endeavour and at every institution, they are contracted to work.

The lack of good corporate governance by professionals at workplaces has been cited as a major factor for the collapse of several institutions in the country. 

Speaking to Class News at the inaugural launch of the Ghana chapter of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute and the Charter Awards ceremony in Accra, Mr Baker said it is incumbent on professionals to ensure the highest value in every working environment.

“Ethics is at the heart of everything we do,” he said, adding: “If you look at our curricula, ethics is, at least, 10 per cent of every level that people take”.
