"Jane’s contributions to the industry and the association, as well as her vision for CAIA, make her the ideal colleague to take the organization into the next decade,” said Florence Lombard, chief executive officer of the CAIA Association.

"The world continues to increase in complexity and helping investors understand the growing array of investment opportunities and risks involved is central to CAIA's mission," said Buchan. "I am excited to continue to work with the preeminent provider of alternative investment education.”
