Perhaps You Knew ...
The Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) designation is the most recognized and respected investment credential in the world. And that the CFA Institute is the largest association of investment professionals, with over 167,000 members across 163 countries.
 
But Did You Know ...
CFA professionals are more than simply "financial analysts"?
CFAs are employed in asset management, audit and accounting, client advisory, finance and treasury, fiduciary, government and regulatory, investment banking, mergers and acquisitions, and so much more.  
 
CFA professionals are more than just "finance majors"?
A CFA designation is often a natural extension for those with other backgrounds. CPAs, economists, financial planners, lawyers, mathematicians, to name just a few.
 
CFA designations enhance job prospects in other disciplines?
For CPAs, improved opportunities in CEO, CFO, Treasurer, or Finance roles. In public practice, to better serve clients with: advisory and audit; debt or equity offerings; hedging, foreign currency, and derivatives.
 
For lawyers: M&A; Corporate Securities; In-House Legal; Government & Regulatory; Estate Planning.
 
CFA professionals are in high demand?
The CFA Program: teaches real world skills for complex investment decisions; develops practical analysis and management skills; adheres to ethics and professionalism; provides in-depth continuing education.
 
The CFA Program is a challenge. 300+ hours of study per exam. 3 level exams, offered annually. Competing against highly motivated peers from around the world. Pass rates under 50% per level exam.
 
But that is the CFA designation's true value. A "CFA" demonstrates one's ability to: learn skills; handle adversity; show a work ethic and perseverance; possess time management skills; work to deadlines.
 
The CFA designations tells employers you possess the skills and the character that companies desire.
 
On December 3rd, Come Out and Learn ...
If pursuing the CFA designation is right for you.
 
Why hiring a CFA charterholder may add value to your organization.
