 Overview

​CFA Singapore mentorship programme is a six month long programme that pairs experienced members of the society with junior and mid-level-professionals in the investment industry. It is aimed at tapping into the knowledge of more experienced charterholders and to encourage more members to become involved with the society​​​​.
 ​​

​A seasoned mentor is one of the most valuable resources a young, ambitious professional could wish for. At CFA Singapore, our Mentorship Programme pairs youthful energy with the wisdom of experience, building mutually-beneficial relationships. The Programme is structured along these principles:

Flexibility ​To accommodate Mentors' busy schedules, we accept Mentors between January to May 2018. Each mentor will be matched with one mentee according to each party's stated aims during the application process.

Tiered matching. We recognize that young members' needs evolve greatly in their initial years in the working world. Mentors with over 10 years' working experience will be matched with mentees with 3-7 years' experience. Mentors with 7-10 years' experience will be matched with junior CFA charterholders with less than 3 years' experience.

Low, sustainable commitment. A Mentor's commitment is to meet their mentee on a one-to-one basis at 6 times over a period of 6 months, at mutually-compatible timings. CFA Singapore recommends that mentees take the lead in initiating and organizing these meetings.

Training support. Mentors will be invited to attend coaching and leadership skills workshops. Mentees will be provided with soft-skills workshops, which are also open to Mentors.

CFA Singapore will conduct an information session at the start of the program in March 2018 for selected mentees, who are required to attend. At the end of the Programme in Nov/Dec 2018, there will be a closing event whereby mentors and mentees are invited to celebrate, network, and share their experiences
