Our Leadership

The Board of Governors is the highest governing authority of CFA Institute, and is responsible for defining its vision, mission, and strategies. It works in conjunction with the Leadership Team, which comprises the President and CEO, and other executives who manage divisions within CFA Institute.

In keeping with our goals of promoting accountability and integrity in financial markets, we strive to communicate our mission, strategies, and operations as clearly and openly as possible.
