In line with its mission to promote the development of the highest standard of financial practices, the CFA Society in Uruguay has sealed an alliance with UK-based fund manager Colchester Global Investors, in order to strengthen its areas of enterprise, exchange knowledge and to work together on the various actions and activities to be developed in the country, they announced in a statement.
The institutions will hold conferences, events and training sessions so that those interested can acquire the broadest knowledge in the field and exchange information with the participation of local and worldwide experts who have excelled in this area.
“Since the formation of Society in the country in 2018, CFA Society Uruguay brings together a hundred investment professionals committed to the principles of the CFA Institute, linked to the promotion of the highest ethical standards, the promotion of financial education and professional excellence for the benefit of society as a whole,” said the CFA Society Uruguay.
With over $40 billion in assets under management, Colchester Global Investors focuses exclusively on the active management of global sovereign bonds and currencies. Headquartered in London, the company has offices in New York, Dubai, Singapore and Sydney with a client base that includes sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, funds of funds, private banks and discretionary mandates.
“Among the key aspects of focusing exclusively on sovereigns is the low correlation with managers that include credit strategies, simplicity due to the lack of complex instruments, and liquidity, especially in times of market stress. Colchester is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD),” Colchester said.
