ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report produced by the Financial Executives Research Foundation on ethical behavior and financial integrity. The survey of financial executives revealed two models for ethical behavior related to finance. The Ethically Intelligent Financial Executive (EIFE) is aware of potential conflicts of interest that may arise, and devotes time to considering these issues. The EIFE is also a leader in promoting and exemplifying ethical behavior within the firm. Several traits mark the Ethically Intelligent Financial Organization (EIFO), including the adoption of corporate codes of ethics and mission statements.
