Investment Professionals are better informed about the investment strategies, the characteristics and risks of financial instruments compared to clients, who trust them for the management of their wealth. Consequently, financial advisors should provide investment services maintaining the highest level of ethical and professional standards.
In this seminar, we examine duties of investment professionals to clients, such as suitability, best execution, communication with clients and conflicts of interest. Such standards are described in CySEC legislation as well as the CFA Institute Standards of Practice Handbook.
