Good People Doing Bad Things: Ethics in Investment Management

The bank robber Willie Sutton is said to have explained his vocation by saying “that’s where the money is.”  So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised at ethical breaches in the investment management business that end up costing clients hard-earned money.  But is it simply a matter of crooked people getting into the business? We’ll examine some of the more subtle causes for poor ethical decision making that can cause otherwise good people with functioning moral compasses to do things that in retrospect are ethically suspect or perhaps even criminal.

This event will feature a champagne toast to celebrate our new Charter Holders.
