BCI is honoured to receive the CFA Society Victoria’s inaugural Community Champion Award, which was presented at the organization’s 13th Annual Forecast Dinner on January 27. Lincoln Webb, BCI’s executive vice president & global head of infrastructure & renewable resources, and a CFA charterholder, accepted the award on behalf of BCI.

“Each and every year we are finding new opportunities with CFA Society Victoria to have a positive impact on the careers of investment professionals and build the investment management community in Victoria. We look forward to many more years of working together,” said Lincoln.

The investment industry is knowledge intensive. As an active in-house asset manager, BCI depends on the specialized skills and expertise of its people to successfully execute its world-class investment strategies and fulfill client needs. The CFA designation and engagement with local CFA Societies adds value for our investment professionals.

As one of the largest employers of CFA charterholders in Victoria, BCI has been a key partner and champion for the CFA Society Victoria and currently employs more than 70 CFA charterholders registered as members of the local Victoria chapter.

The Community Champion Award recognizes BCI for more than 20 years of support for the CFA Society Victoria and its membership. Highlights include long-standing sponsorship of events, like the annual forecast dinner, partnering on initiatives and programs, such as joint efforts with the CFA Institute Research Foundation and Women in Capital Markets to advance equity, diversity and inclusion in our industry, and ongoing support for employees. BCI offers financial support, coordinated study tools and groups, and access to professional development to colleagues who are pursuing or have achieved their CFA designations.

BCI is also engaged with the CFA Society Victoria on developing the next generation of investment professionals and leaders in our industry through support for the University of Victoria’s Applied Portfolio Management Program, which is a collaboration between CFA Society Victoria, CFA Institute, UVic Continuing Studies, UVic Economics and the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business that gives students hands-on portfolio management experience.

BCI is proud to support the CFA Society Victoria and its mission to promote the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence within the investment profession.
