CFA® Program Overview

The CFA Program, administered by CFA Institute, sets the global standard for investment industry knowledge and ethical behaviour. CFA Institute determines the curriculum, administers the exam, and awards the charter. Known as the “gold standard” amongst financial industry professionals, the CFA charter is recognized as a significant benchmark within the financial community. A quote from The Financial Times reads: “Among the countless finance degrees around the world, the Chartered Financial Analyst qualification has become the gold standard.” The CFA Institute describes its program as a “globally recognised, graduate level curriculum that links theory and practice with real-world investment analysis and portfolio management skills.” The program focuses on portfolio management, asset valuation, financial reporting and corporate finance.

The CFA Program consists of a series of three examinations (Levels I, II, and III). The Level I exam is offered four times per year, and the Level II and III exams twice a year.
