Compensation Survey Results are In!


CFA Society Indianapolis is excited to release the results of our 2016 Financial Compensation Survey.  This in-depth look at compensation levels in our area was conducted with tremendous help from CFA Society Minnesota.

Click here to access the report.  The white paper summarizes high-level survey findings in an easy-to-read format.  Feel free to share this output 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 we have no way to track who took the survey (it was completely anonymous).

Next year, we hope to expand the survey to include results from neighboring cities such as Cincinnati, Dayton, and Louisville to provide an even more comprehensive report for all of our regional markets.  Thank you for your interest, and continued involvement with CFA Indy!  Please contact us with any questions or feedback.
