Professional Conduct History Requests

  • Provide the published Notice of Disciplinary Action for individuals who have been publicly sanctioned.
CFA Institute will not:
  • Disclose whether an individual is the subject of a current or past Professional Conduct investigation.
  • Disclose whether CFA Institute has issued a Private Reprimand or Cautionary Letter to the individual.
