French Society of Investment Professionals was established in 1998 to bring together and support CFA Institute members and charterholders. The society was renamed
Association CFA France in 2005,
CFA France in 2011 and CFA Society France in 2013. It is the French local society of CFA Institute, run entirely by volunteers and regrouping local investment professionals consisting of portfolio managers, investment advisors, educators and other financial professionals.
Our members work in many professions throughout France with the vast majority working in portfolio management. Their average age is 30 years.
Due to the strong acceptance of the CFA charter and the importance of this designation in the global arena, we have seen our membership grow 20-30% each year to reach over 700 in 2014.
