The subscription-only Indiana Legislative Insight reports this week:

Former Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard has taken on the post of interim general counsel for the CFA Institute in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Institute is the global association of investment professionals with more than 119,000 members in 147 countries and territories “that sets the standard for professional excellence and credentials. The organization is a champion for ethical behavior in investment markets and a respected source of knowledge in the global financial community. The end goal: to create an environment where investors’ interests come first, markets function at their best, and economies grow.”

In his professional conduct role, Mr. Shepard oversees the CFA Institute disciplinary process and serves as the executive liaison to the Disciplinary Review Committee. He also acts as the CFA Institute compliance officer responsible for education and enforcement of the CFA Institute Employee Code of Conduct.

He has extensive judicial and academic experience.
