 Candidate Support

CFA Vancouver supports its candidates through a variety of initiatives designed to enrich their experience with the CFA Program and to assist in achieving the CFA designation.

  • Monthly Newsletter
    The Candidate Corner of the Society's monthly update includes a listing of current events, sample exam questions, professional development articles and webcasts, and exam writing strategies.

  • Study Groups
    CFA Vancouver organizes study groups throughout the Lower Mainland for each exam. Candidates are responsible for determining when their group meets and what material is covered. Each group will consist of a maximum of six people and are organized based on geographical area.

  • Mock Exams
    Practice exams are offered in May and November each year. The exams are created by the Boston Security Analysts Society (BSAS) and provide valuable experience in writing the CFA exam. The November Level I mock exam is the same that is offered in May.

  • Candidate Reception
    This annual reception is designed to support candidates while they pursue the CFA designation by introducing them to current CFA charterholders, providing information on career planning and the opportunity to network with peers.

  • June Exam After Party
    CFA Society Vancouver's Social Committee organizes an annual event to celebrate the accomplishments of its candidates in writing the CFA exams. The event is scheduled in the evening following the June exam.

  • Charter Awards Ceremony
    This prestigous annual dinner takes place in December to acknowledge new CFA charterholders and to award the CFA charter. CFA Society Vancouver's past presidents join the celebration in support of new charterholders and their accomplishments.

  • Networking Opportunities
    CFA Society Vancouver recognizes the importance of making connections within the finance and investment communities. To assist with this, the Society organizes a variety of social events for charterholders and candidates, including pub nights, martini tasting events, and an annual Monte Carlo night.

 CFA Society Vancouver Candidate Quote

"Becoming a charterholder isn't easy. It isn't meant to be. It is meant to define you as a leader in the investment industry, and to deserve that kind of recognition, it requires a passion for investments, dedication to a goal, and the ambition to be the best."
