CFA Level 1 Exam Question No: 82:

Urvashi Kulkarni is an investment manager with Amritrust Bank, a mid-size investment bank. Urvashi is managing the pension plan assets of Megalith Is, a maker of cloned integrated chips for PCs. Megalith is planning a take-over of Microchip Corp., a fast-growing rival which recently patented a technology which promises to change the face of chip cloning business. The pension plan assets of Megalith consist of 17% of Microchip’s stock. Megalith’s management has decided to buy up to 33% of the stock in a tender offer and transfer the 17% stock holdings of the pension plan to the company investment account. So it instructs Urvashi to sell the Microchip stock to Megalith’s general account at the current market price and invest the cash in other stock as she feels appropriate. Urvashi knows that this action and the subsequent takeover of Microchip will substantially elevate Megalith’s stock price, creating shareholder value. Urvashi should

Option A: refuse to follow the directive since she can be held liable under ERISA if she follows directives issued by the plan sponsor.

Option B: refuse to follow the directive since the action is harmful to the pension plan beneficiaries and Urvashi owes fiduciary loyalty to them, not the plan sponsor.

Option C: follow the management’s directive and sell the stock to the general account.

Option D: none of these answers.

Show/Hide Answer

Option B : refuse to follow the directive since the action is harmful to the pension plan beneficiaries and Urvashi owes fiduciary loyalty to them, not the plan sponsor.

Urvashi owes fiduciary loyalty to the plan beneficiaries, not the management of Megalith. She must not sell Microchip’s stock prior to the tender offer since in doing so, she will be selling the plan assets at a much lower price than would be available once the tender is floated. While such an action benefits Megalith shareholders, it harms the plan beneficiaries. Urvashi owes absolutely no allegiance to Megalith shareholders. Standard IV (B.1) – Fiduciary Duties – and the Topical Study, “Fiduciary Duties.”

Standard IV (B.3) – Fair Dealing requires AIMR members to treat all clients and prospects fairly when disseminating investment information or recommendation.
Which of the following is/are implied by this?
I. All clients and prospects must be treated equally i.e. the investment recommendation should be disseminated to all the clients without prejudice.
II. Amongst the eligible clients, no favoritism should be shown i.e. small investors should be treated the same as large investors.
III. All eligible clients must be informed about new opportunities simultaneously.

Option A: I and II only.

Option B: II and III only.

Option C: II only.

Option D: I, II and III.

Show/Hide Answer

Option C : II only.

Standard IV (B.3) – Fair Dealing requires AIM members to treat all clients and prospects fairly when disseminating investment information or recommendation.
However, “fairly” does not mean “equally” for one major reason: each client has different investment needs. A recommendation, if not suitable for a particular client’s risk-reward profile, should not be communicated to that client! So care must be taken while disseminating investment recommendations to individual clients to ensure suitability. Therefore, (I) is incorrect. Of the eligible clients, as long as there is no bias shown favoring one client over the other, the standard does not require that they be informed simultaneously; indeed this is almost impossible in most cases because of time lags in communication channels – mail, phone, fax, etc. So (III) is incorrect.
