Due to the limited opportunities available to author Research Foundation content, we have collaborated with the CFA Institute member volunteer program to develop the following opportunities for investment professionals.

Ambassador Program

Ambassadors are interested and informed investment professionals willing to engage in outreach that will raise the profile of and expand dialogue about Research Foundation publications and events. Activities and time commitment are entirely flexible, depending on your interests and availability; you determine where and when your input can offer the greatest value in raising awareness. Please contact us so we are aware of your activities and can recognize your support.

Opportunities Include:

Social Media
Tweet, post on FaceBook, start discussions on LinkedIn, contribute to Enterprising Investor or other blogs, and facilitate other social media interactions about Research Foundation publications or events.

Read monographs and share objective and constructive reviews on Amazon, Apple iTunes, or the CFA Institute publications site. 

Donations & Partnerships
Discuss with employers and others the importance of donating to support Research Foundation initiatives and the benefits of having a monograph co-branded with a company logo.

Knowledge Sharing
Initiate or enhance the Research Foundation presence on Wikipedia and other online resource sites.
