CFA® Preparation


The Chartered Financial Analyst® Program is a globally recognized standard for measuring portfolio management and investment analysis competence and integrity that is administered by CFA Institute, the global not-for-profit association of investment professionals. The program requires candidates to study for and pass three levels of exams that measure a candidate’s ability to apply the fundamental knowledge of investment principles at a professional level. Candidates who pass the exams and meet other requirements earn a CFA Charter.
