In 2013, CFA Institute enhanced its educational offering for the investment industry with the Claritas Investment Certificate meant to display I​nstitute's effort on strengthening financial knowledge and overview of industry professionals of various fields of activity. During 2016 the program was rebranded as CFA Institute ​Investment Foundations™​.​
