Paula Luciani receives congratulations from CFA Institute!

Dear Paula Luciani,

When investment professionals strive to uphold the highest standards of competency and ethics and to stay current with the latest industry standards and research, they demonstrate that they understand the importance of continuous professional development. This not only raises the profile of their firm, but it better serves the needs of their clients and sets a higher standard of excellence industry-wide.

It is with great pleasure that I, on the behalf of the Board of Governors, recognize Paula for voluntarily attesting to the CFA Institute Continuing Education (CE) Program in 2016. The CE Program recognizes members that earn a minimum of 20 hours of CE credit, including 2 hours in the content areas of Standards, Ethics, and Regulations (SER), each calendar year. To date, Paula has participated in 9 year(s) of consecutive continuing education.
Investors deserve to be served by professionals who stay on the cutting edge of the investment management profession, and stand out from their peers so I applaud those who remain dedicated to the lifelong pursuit of investment knowledge and to maintaining integrity in our constantly changing and competitive profession.
Please join me in congratulating Paula on this achievement!


Paul Smith, CFA
