Advocacy is a key function of our society.  It is currently overseen by society Directors David Kandziora (Chair) and Philip Houghton-Brown.

We aim to:

*  Advance and promote policies that serve investor protection over commercial interests.
*  Support the creation and adoption of rules and standards that improve market structure, transparency and fairness for all investors.
*  Increase industry professionalism.

There were 15 founding signatories (by the end of 2022).  A recorded webinar about the code can be viewed here.
