The CFA Institute is a global organization comprised of the world’s largest association of investment professionals with over 100,000 members and 136 regional societies around the world.
The Chartered Financial Analyst qualification is the leading professional investment accreditation worldwide and brings with it the highest standards of ethics, education and professional excellence.
Once candidates have successfully completed the CFA Program, and met the criteria outlined by the CFA Institute, they earn the right to use the CFA designation and become a “charter holder” or member. Members tend to work in the forefront of the financial services industry and in particular corporate finance, investment management, research, sales and trading, broking and investment banking.
What employers want
The CFA Program is a graduate-level self-study program that combines a broad-based curriculum of investment principles with professional conduct requirements. It is designed to prepare you for a wide range of investment specialities that apply in every market all over the world. Employers recognise that CFA charter holders have a broad investment perspective and a profound understanding of the global marketplace.
The curriculum is updated each year to keep pace with the most relevant trends and current practices and to ensure that the skills employers look for are reflected therein.
As a professional designation, studying for the CFA exams is frequently undertaken while working which enables you to earn while you learn. Employers often provide study support to students who work in a related field and wish to pursue the CFA? designation.
