CFA Institute, the global association of investment management professionals, has named Lutfey Siddiqi, CFA, managing director, regions and society relations. He will oversee the organization’s regional teams and those who work with its 161 local CFA societies around the world, and will report to Margaret Franklin, CFA, president and CEO.

“Siddiqi brings extensive global industry expertise and a commitment to the CFA Institute,” says Franklin. “[He] has been part of our Future of Finance Council and is a former CFA Society Singapore Board member, so he knows us well and is connected to those we serve.”

He is a member of the World Economic Forum Future Council on Fiscal and Monetary Policy, having previously served on councils for the future of financing and long-term investing.

His industry experience includes stints at UBS, Barclays Capital, and Deutsche Bank. At UBS Investment Bank, his last role was as global head of emerging markets for FX, rates and credit, and founding head of UBS Knowledge Network. At Barclays Capital, he headed FX distribution and corporate risk advisory for the Asia-Pacific region.
