Learning today to lead tomorrow.

What is leadership? Our nation has certainly seen its share of leaders throughout its history--former presidents, civil rights activists and industry champions. Each has played his or her part in molding our present, just as today's leaders will shape our nation's future.

For the past 70 years, Financial Executives Research Foundation (FERF) has provided valuable and independent business research that has helped generations of finance leaders. Established in 1944, Financial Executives Research Foundation (FERF) is the research affiliate of FEI. FERF is a non-profit, non-political, educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS.

Our mission is to provide knowledge and insights that enable informed decision-making by senior-level financial executives and their organizations. The unique research FERF publishes draws from the experience of FEI members, and financial leaders in many industries, to provide in-depth analysis on the latest accounting and finance topics that matter most to you and your profession.

How the Research Foundation Helps FEI Members

"I joined FEI In 1969, Initially to receive the magazine and the research reports. After a while I got involved In Chapter activities and gained from the personal contacts. But underlying everything was the substantive knowledge available to members from the work of the Research Foundation. That is the bedrock that permits everything else. Over the years, FERF studies, and I was involved in several, have proven very helpful In business. Then when my son, Tom, went into financial management I urged him to join, and be active, in FEI. But he can tell his own story."--Al King, FEI member, Vice Chairman & Senior Technical Director, Financial Valuation and Consulting with Marshall & Stevens

"Financial Executives Research Foundation is an invaluable resource for FEI members. I am a longtime FEI Executive member presently working toward my doctoral degree, studying how earnings guidance influences communication between firms and investors. Colleagues at FERF have opened all sorts of doors for my research. The staff has helped with a literature review, introductions to senior executives In industry, and design of a survey that will be given to FEI members this spring. My experiences demonstrate how FERF bridges a gap between scholars and practitioners, and represents a crown jewel within FEI."--Tom King (son of Al King), FEI member, Flead of International Business with Progressive Corp.
