Callahan Financial Planning Adopts CFA Institute Asset Manager Code of Professional Conduct
OMAHA, Neb., Jan. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — CFA Institute, the global association of investment professionals that sets standards for professional excellence, has added Callahan Financial Planning Company to the list of investment firms that claim compliance with its Asset Manager Code of Professional Conduct.
The Asset Manager Code of Professional Conduct outlines the ethical and professional responsibilities of companies that manage assets for clients. This code serves as a point of reference for investors, establishing clear policies on what investors can expect by working with a firm that has claimed compliance with the code.
Callahan Financial Planning joins approximately 1,400 firms worldwide that have adopted this professional conduct code. Firm founder and president William Callahan said:
“We believe our clients, and all investors, should expect the highest level of professional conduct when receiving financial advice. This action provides a tangible commitment to the public of our intent, and we believe this illustrates just how strong our commitment to ethical conduct is.
“Put another way, this commitment is another way for us to state our founding philosophy and shared value: we must always place our clients’ interests before our own. This is also a continuation of our commitment to avoid or minimize conflicts of interest by only ever being paid directly by our clients, a differentiated structure of financial advice known as fee-only.”
The CFA Institute’s Asset Manager Code of Professional Conduct requires an asset manager commit to uphold the following professional standards:
- Act in a professional and ethical manner at all times
- Act for the benefit of clients
- Act with independence and objectivity
- Act with skill, competence, and diligence
- Communicate with clients in a timely and accurate manner
- Uphold the applicable rules governing capital markets
