A charterholder not only has the technical knowledge to make investment decisions but also adopts and is held to the highest ethical standards. A comprehensive, global view and up-to-date practical skills give these investment professionals the tools and deep understanding necessary to effectively analyze the risks and rewards of a variety of investment types, enabling them to address a client’s specific investment needs.
