NEW YORK, JUNE 22, 2017 — CFA Society New York officially unveils its change of name from CFA Society New York (CFANY) in an effort to become more closely aligned with CFA Institute, the global association of investment professionals. The rebrand comes alongside the 80th anniversary of CFA Society New York and will allow the society to provide a more accurate description of the organization, as well as achieve greater local and global brand awareness.

The rebrand further demonstrates a commitment to promoting the highest ethical standards, best practices and professional development of 10,000+ members for the ultimate benefit of society and the broader investing public. Building on the society’s existing strength and network, the rebrand also highlights the value and presence of CFA Society New York both in the local market and beyond.

“Since its founding in 1937, the CFA Society New York has preserved and promoted ethics and integrity in this community. Now, 80 years later, we are excited to elevate our important work with CFA Institute, as we strive to raise standards and put investors first,” said Daniel Dagen, CFA, chief executive officer of CFA Society New York.

Conference Honors Legacy of Benjamin Graham
To mark the occasion, CFA Society New York hosted its fourth annual Ben Graham Value Conference at Fordham University. The event honors the legacy of Benjamin Graham, the founder of CFA Society New York, and one of the creators of the concept of a chartered financial analyst designation. Based on Ben Graham’s teachings, this year’s conference explores the theme of “Mr. Market” through keynote speeches, presentations, panels and best-idea pitches.

“CFA Institute commends CFA Society New York and its members for their commitment to improving the state of the investment management profession and future of the industry as a whole,” said John Bowman, CFA, managing director, Americas, at CFA Institute. “We are delighted to leverage our relationship with one of our strongest member societies to advance a shared mission of promoting ethics and integrity in the investment profession.”
