 2018 Compensation Survey Results are in!

2016 Indianapolis Survey Cover Orig.pngCFA Society Indianapolis is excited to release ​the results of our 2018 Financial Compensation Survey. In partnership with CFA Society Minnesota, we conducted an in-depth look at compensation levels in our area. View the report here >>​

The report summarizes high-level survey findings of the most popular positions and other demographics in an easy-to-read format. We encourage you to share this report with anyone who may benefit from it, including colleagues, hiring managers, professors, and so forth. Also, if you sent this survey to anyone not involved with CFA Society Indianapolis, please forward this message to them, as the survey was completely anonymous and we have no way to track who completed it. 

To the financial and investment professionals who participated in this survey, we sincerely thank you! Without your support, we wouldn't have been able to provide you with such a valuable resource. Your commitment to strengthening our community and industry is greatly appreciated.

 Congratulations to our newest Charterholders!
