What is the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation?

The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation has become known as the symbol of professional excellence within the global investment community. Around the world, employers and investors recognize the CFA designation as the definitive standard for measuring competence and integrity in the fields of portfolio management and investment analysis.

While most graduate school programs cover a broad range of topics, the Chartered Financial Analyst Program focuses specifically on investment knowledge, and the self-study format allows you to continue working full time as you progress towards earning the CFA charter.

The CFA Program with its three levels of examination verifies a candidate’s ability to apply investment principles across all areas of the investment decision‐making process.

IFA’s educational process greatly increases your chances of success through personal interaction with qualified instructors and a study process that will take you step by step through all modules with practice exams following each study module and two mock exams at the end of each CFA level.
