What's in it for employers?
The CFA Program provides the strongest foundation in finance, economics and advanced investment analysis along with an exceptional focus on Ethics and Professional Standards. CFA candidates include students at any of the three levels of exams while they become CFA Charterholder after clearing all 3 exams and have to acquire 4-year experience in relevant functions.
CFA candidates have the potential to add value to an organization as clearing even CFA Level 1 requires sound understanding of Finance concepts along with an exceptional focus on Ethics and Professional Standards as core study module.
We recommend viewing the CFA Program Curriculum and CFA exam pass rates which gives a good idea of how rigorous the exams are.
Through this program companies can prepare skilled trainees to take up permanent roles in Finance, Investments, Research, Business Development and several other departments in future.
What's in it for candidates?
The program provides an opportunity to CFA Candidates to get trained in a practical work setting and also increases chances of the candidates to be retained as permanent employees in the same organization or being receuited as permanent employees in some other organization in future, thereby improving the employability of CFA Candidates and Charterholders in Pakistan. All trainee positions under this program are paid positions.
CFA Society Pakistan will also offer limited number of scholarships to candidates for the remaining levels of the CFA exam while they are employed as trainees through the Corporate Training Program.
