Congratulations, CFA Charterholder Class of 2016!




On November 9th, the CFA Society Washington, DC was proud to recognize 38 new Charterholders at our annual CFAW Charter Ceremony. It was a special evening celebrating all the hard work put in by the candidates. CFAW Chair Roman Iwachiw presented each candidate with an official ceremonial charter.

The event was capped off with a special presentation by Hilda Ochoa-Brillembourg, the Founder and Chairman of Strategic Investment Group. Ms. Ochoa-Brillembourg shared her personal insights on the impact of the recent U.S. Presidential election and shared some personal advice and best practices with the new Charterholders, which will be invaluable to them as they progress through their careers.
