Signup Deadline: 30-06-2020
Starts: 01-07-2020
Ends: 01-07-2021


The CFA UK Research Analysts Special Interest Group (RASIG) exists to highlight two areas of interest for research analysts: 1) Industry regulation, research pricing & payment models, structural change and related issues 2) Support with the practical aspects of the job of a research analyst.

The SIG aims to do the above through the provision of events, a forum for the sharing of ideas, and the creation of a community. RASIG is now looking for two new volunteers to join its leadership group (LG).


Purpose and activities:

  • Support the growth and engagement of the SIG online community
  • Assess the topics and content that would be of the most interest to the members of the SIG
  • Help curate and share content to spark discussion and engagement within the online community
  • Help find appropriate speakers for webinars and/or live events
  • Support the hosting of regular virtual networking events for SIG members
  • Contribute in other ways to the creation of a community around the SIG


Who are we looking for?

  • Passion for research analysis and strong interest in exploring the issues that affect the sector (e.g. MiFID II, other regulation, research pricing, automation and AI, big data, the rise of passive investing, etc.)
  • Interest in helping research analysts acquire the skills they need to master their roles
  • People with experience in various asset classes – equities, fixed income, commodities, etc.
  • The drive to create a community of similarly-minded individuals
  • Willing to access existing networks and create bridges to groups or individuals whose knowledge or expertise complements the SIG’s area of activity
  • Willing to be responsive and creative in finding new ways of engaging the SIG membership online
  • LG members are likely to be good networkers and competent online administrators
  • LG members will need to be able to jointly express a vision for the SIG and develop an annual operating plan and a long-term plan for the SIG with the others on the LG team


How the CFA UK will help:

  • The CFA UK will fully support one event each year for the SIG, including logistics, venue booking, etc. The LG will be responsible for sourcing the venues for and hosting the other events during the year.
  • For all RASIG events, the CFA UK can provide marketing to the Society’s wider membership
  • CFA UK can also provide support with technical operations for webinars


What will you gain from volunteering in this role?

  • Build your profile within CFA UK’s network of volunteers, wider membership and the industry
  • Develop leadership, communication and teamwork skills
  • Recognition for your contribution in shaping and delivering services to the membership
  • Opportunity to meet and network with other like-minded investment professionals
  • Volunteering brings a “shared experience” amongst peers that has long-lasting benefits for your career
