Meet fellow CFA charterholders from the 80s and 90s vintage to the more recent cohorts to make new friends and renew connections, exchange investment ideas and share unique CFA stories. Be prepared to wined and dined with an 8-course sumptuous dinner at the iconic Fullerton Hotel Ballroom. To round off the evening’s proceedings, fabulous prizes will be given out at our lucky draw.
