Introduction of the Professional Body

"The CFA Program has been described as the gold standard qualification for the investment industry. The program thoroughly covers a broad range of investment topics including asset valuation, financial mathematics, corporate finance and portfolio management. The qualification is ideal for people working as Analysts or Asset Managers, but also for anyone wanting to understand the workings of the financial markets from a theoretical and practical perspective will find it useful. Throughout the three levels there is a strong emphasis on building analytical skills underpinned by a belief in ethical behavior. "

The CFA examinations are administered by CFA Institute, whose headquarters are in Charlottesville, USA, with offices in London and Hong Kong. The Institute is composed of more than 100,000 individual voting members and 136 societies around the world.
