 Welcome to CFA Society Bahrain

At CFA Society Bahrain, our mission is to advance the interest of the local investment community. As a Member Society of CFA Institute, our society connects members with other like-minded investment professionals, those interested in joining the profession and the community in the Kingdom and around the world.

CFA Society Bahrain was established by CFA Institute in 2006 as a non-profit membership organization. We promote and maintain the highest standards of professional excellence and integrity, contribute to the development of local capital markets and professional skills, and actively promote the CFA Program.

Throughout the year, CFA Society Bahrain offers ongoing professional education, volunteer opportunities and great networking events among other benefits. We are here to help each other and we hope you can join us. ​​​



Mutamahin is a graduate training program hosted by the CFA Society Bahrain.

Mutamahin provides candidates (students in their last year or recently graduated) with high-value training in areas that are not typically covered by a university curriculum but are nonetheless necessary for the job market. We empower young graduates and develop their employability skills.
