The CFA® Charter was first awarded in 1963. It is often referred to as the gold standard of professional credentials within the global investment community. Employers and investors associate the CFA designation with competence and integrity in the fields of portfolio management and investment analysis.
No credential is as widely regarded in the global financial industry for its rigorous focus on current investment knowledge, analytical skill, and ethical standards as the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) designation. This globally recognized and respected credential is held by over 167,000 professionals across 165 countries.
