 Overview

​CFA Society Singapore mentorship programme is a 10 months long programme that pairs experienced members of the society with junior and mid-level-professionals in the investment industry. It is aimed at tapping into the knowledge of more experienced charterholders and to encourage more members to become involved with the society.

​A seasoned mentor is one of the most valuable resources a young, ambitious professional could wish for. 

At CFA Society Singapore, our Mentorship Programme pairs youthful energy with the wisdom of experience, building mutually-beneficial relationships. The Programme is structured along these principles:

Matching

Each mentor will be matched with one mentee according to each party's stated objectives during the application process and through speed-dating. Each mentor (mentee) will meet 3 potential mentees (mentors) and will rank their preferences for CFA Society Singapore and the Mentoring Committee to finalise the matching.

Low, sustainable commitment

A Mentor's commitment is to meet their mentee on a one-to-one basis 6 times over a period of 6 months, at mutually-compatible timings. CFA Society Singapore recommends that mentees take the lead in initiating and organizing these meetings.

Training support

Mentors will be invited to attend coaching and leadership skills workshops. Mentees will be provided with soft-skills workshops, which are also open to Mentors.

CFA Society Singapore will conduct two information sessions at the start of the program in January and Feburay 2019 for potential mentees and mentors to understand how the programme runs. 

At the end of the programme in Oct 2019, there will be a closing event whereby mentors and mentees are invited to celebrate, network, and share their experiences​
