CFA Society South Africa

A Partner in the CFA Institute Global Network of Societies



Administered by CFA Institute, the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) Programme is a graduate-level, self-study curriculum and examination programme for investment specialists.

Established in 1962, the CFA Programme sets the global standard for investment knowledge, standards, and ethics. Earning the credential can serve as a passport to entry or advancement within the investment profession around the world. The designation tells clients, employers, and colleagues that the charterholder has mastered a rigorous curriculum covering a broad range of investment topics and that he or she is committed to the highest ethical standards in the profession.

Our society encourages its members to earn the CFA charter and supports candidates by sponsoring CFA exam study groups and other programmes. Many of our members hold the esteemed CFA designation.
