Carl Robert, CFA, President of CFA Montréal said, “We are honored to have won this prestigious award, as our society is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence in the investment industry.

We are inspired by the award and will continue to help build a better investment profession. We also would like to congratulate all the award winners and especially our colleagues from CFA Québec for its Most Outstanding Award.”

Randi Tolber, CFA, Head of Global Society Relations, CFA Institute added, “We send our congratulations and deep appreciation to all award winners and finalists. The CFA Society community plays an integral role in helping us to fulfill our shared mission, and we are delighted to recognize its achievements through the 2020 Society Awards Programme.

This year’s judges were equally impressed with the high quality of submissions and how well societies consistently display their ability to adapt and innovate.”

About the Society Awards Programme

The Society Awards Programme consists of a two-phased application process. Phase 1 is a short form application, and then finalists are selected to proceed to a more rigorous Phase 2 application process.

All finalist applications were evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of CFA Institute staff, current President Council Representatives, and past Volunteer of the Year award winners.
