Ethical Decision Making

Event Description

The CFA Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct is a key component of its mission to lead the global investment profession.  It is also critical to maintaining capital market integrity and the public’s trust in the financial market.  This 60 minute interactive presentation examines several investment scenarios based on real cases that challenge participants to consider the various courses of action to address the issues involved.  Hand held electronic “response devices” are used to allow participants the opportunity to vote on the best course of action.   


Dr. McMillan joined CFA Institute in October of 2008 after more than a decade as a professor of accounting and finance at Johns Hopkins University’s Carey School of Business and George Washington University’s School of Business.  As Director of Ethics and Professional Standards, Dr. McMillan is responsible for creating, sourcing, and developing educational content for CFA Institute members and investment professionals in the area of ethics and professional standards.  Prior to pursuing a career in academia, he was a securities analyst and portfolio manager at Bailard, Biehl, and Kaiser and Merus Capital Management in San Francisco, California.


Dr. McMillan has a PhD in accounting and finance from George Washington University, an MBA from Stanford University, and BA from the University Pennsylvania.  He is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), a Chartered Investment Counselor, and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).  Dr. McMillan is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Business Research.  He is also the Treasurer and a member of the board of directors of Fort Dupont Ice Arena in Washington, DC.  Prior to joining CFA Institute, he was a Vice President and Treasurer of the CFA Society of Washington, DC.
