ACCA and CFA Institute sign MoU for ethics and professionalism

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and CFA Institute agreed a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) establishing a programme of activity that will see both bodies collaborating on a number of developments.

The two bodies will focus on issues effecting both professions including; ethics, professionalism, continuing professional development and thought leadership. ACCA and CFA will also seek to host joint events and webinars, working to showcase the public value of both professions and the need for collaboration between accountants and financial advisors.

ACCA chief executive Helen Brand commented: “I’m delighted CFA Institute is the first professional investment management body to sign a MoU with ACCA. Our values align very closely, as we are both working globally to deliver the highest ethical and professional standards, ensuring our members deliver public value for the benefit of their employers, and customers.”
