This year’s CFA Charter Recognition Ceremony was held on Monday, 8th October at the Intercontinental Hotel in Melbourne.

After last year’s CFA Charter Recognition Ceremony and jazz night proved to be a success, this year CFA Society Melbourne again hosted a very special night to celebrate the new charterholders from the class of 2018. The event was very much anticipated with the presence of our special guest and speaker Paul Smith, President and CEO of CFA Institute.

Mr. Smith made an inspiring speech to congratulate the successful new charterholders for having reached this fantastic milestone. He also thanked their families for providing valuable and unconditional support during their CFA studies. Mr. Smith highlighted the important, challenging role that all CFA charterholders are assigned with: that of protecting the integrity of capital markets and promoting adherence to the highest ethical standards in the investment industry.

After the speech, each CFA charterholder was presented with a recognition certificate. At the end of the ceremony, the charterholders and their families enjoyed a night of great entertainment by The Connie Lansberg Quartet, good food and fine wine.
