Question:

Roger Smith, CFA, has been invited to join a group of analysts in touring the riverboats of River Casino Corp. For the tour, River Casino has arranged chartered flights from casino to casino since commercial flight schedules are not practical for the group’s time schedule. River Casino has also arranged to pay for the analysts’ lodging for the three nights of the tour. According to CFA Institute Standards of Professional Conduct, Smith:

A may accept the arrangements as they are.
Explaination

Because the itinerary required charter flights due to a lack of commercial transportation, River Casino can appropriately provide them. While Standard 1(B) Independence and Objectivity recommends that members pay their own room costs, it is not required and it is not unusual for members to accept accommodations.
