 ‭(Hidden)‬ 2012 National CFA Member Compensation Report

July 2012

The results are in from the first National CFA Member Compensation Survey! This survey was designed to provide Canadian CFA Members with compensation information to help with career assessment and planning.

The self-reported data included in this report covers broadly defined positions and, as such, provide members with useful directional frames of reference about pay levels. It should also be noted that because the survey includes only data from a sample of Canadian CFA members, it is not necessarily representative of the full CFA Institute membership or the total population of individuals in these positions or locations.

While salary is a key component of the study, we also examined other factors such as prior positions held, deferred compensation, corporate and self-managed AUM, and trends in pay, including base pay, bonuses, stock options, benefits, pensions, and geographic impact.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Top roles performed include financial analysis (65%), client relationship management (53%), portfolio management/stock selection (49%), general management/admin. (44%), strategy development and planning (41%), performance management (36%) and internal control and risk management (36%).
  • AUM: More than half (53%) of members say they personally manage assets for their employers, managing an average of $3.5 billion.
  • Aggregate average compensation across all CFA members: The mean total compensation rose by 11%. 61% expect compensation to rise in 2012, with 32% expecting it to remain the same and just 7% expecting a decrease.
  • Total compensation varies by region, sector and position held: These details are provided in the full report. A few highlights include higher compensation in Toronto and Calgary than in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Atlantic, and Quebec; and higher compensation for CEO/CAO/COOs, CIOs, equity PMs, and fixed income PMs than those in roles of compliance/regulator/portfolio administrator, sell/buy fixed income/derivatives/credit analyst, and investment consultant.

In the complete 2012 National CFA Member Compensation Report, you'll find expanded coverage of the above topics, along with detailed charts and graphics addressing other intriguing topics.
