kalps: Got this wrong the first time, members must practice and encourage other to practice in a professiona and ethical manner that will reflect credit on members and their profession
Haiqing: i thought it was B first.for i thought the sentence behind the question "serve your clients well". it seems i havn't caught on the meaning of the question. be careful
Shevchenko: I thought it was C but A is right because of CFA Institute doesn't want us to be self-serving.
johney: I thought B. In fact, the A answer is a little self-serving after all, no?
awuzie: when u practise & encourage...it must be for self development
mpoki: Yes,it reflect value of members and their profession.
lynx: yeah, it is B. but, after some reflection, A would answer and clarify the phrase 'encourage others' further.
passtest: "add value" would surmount to "contractual obligation" so it is not the best answer.
SamehHassan: Correct Answer : A.
By promoting the code of Ethics and Practice it all the time will encourage every member to follow the same. That add credit to CFA members and the whole profession and increase the Trust between members and clients/investors.
xyzanand: This is more of a member-to-member communication and thus A seems to be the better choice.
