Wrong answers and their correct answers:
Q1: Benchmarks for minimally acceptable behaviors of community members are:
a. code of ethics
b. laws and regulations
[c]. standards of conduct.
I chose (a), but that is not correct. The Code of Ethics serve as a general guide for how community members should act. It is the Standards of Conduct that serve as benchmarks.
Q12: To maintain trust, the investment management profession must be interdependent with:
[c]. investment firms
I chose (a), which is incorrect. Employers and regulators have their own standards and practices which may differ from regulations and standards set by professional bodies.
