    About CFA


    The CFA charter is respected as the gold standard of professional credentials within the global investment community. The prestige of the charter is due, in part, to the challenging nature of the exams. Administered by CFA Institute, the CFA Program offers you a graduate level curriculum and examination program intended to expand your working knowledge and practical skills relating to investment decision-making. Successful completion of the program and its requirements will earn you the CFA designation, one of the profession's most valued credentials.

     

    How to earn the CFA Charter?


    To earn a CFA Charter, you study for three exams (Levels I, II, III) using an assigned curriculum. Exams for all levels are held in locations around the world. Level I exams are held in June and December. Levels II and III are only held in June. If you pass all three exams and meet the professional and ethical requirements, you can become a regular member of CFA Institute, or "charter holder."

     

    Why CFA?


    The advantages of pursuing a CFA are manifold

    • Educational: The course covers almost every aspect of investment management (both tools and techniques) which adds a great credential to your CV.
    • Reputational: People in the business know the time and dedication it takes to earn the charter. When they see that you have earned it, they will likely believe you have ability, dedication, ethical grounding and the hard, transferable analytical skills necessary to do the job in question.
    • Financial: You may see your salary increase after you've earned the CFA charter or you may surpass other applicants when competing for a new job or position. According to a survey conducted and released by Russell Reynolds Associates in conjunction with the CFA® Institute, compensation for investment professionals has risen by 17 percent since 2003.
    • Career: You'll earn a designation that is respected by employers and the media.

     

    There are a number of financial fields where it makes sense to go through all the time and trouble to earn the charter. The obvious is investment management. As the investment industry continues to become more competitive (fewer positions) and somewhat commoditized, it will become almost imperative for any credible investment manager to earn the charter. Most empirical studies say that for a career in finance, CFA charter is more valuable than an MBA from an average institute.
