The CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) designation is an internationally respected professional designation conferred by the CFA Institute. The program’s professional conduct requirements demand that both CFA candidates and charter holders adhere to the highest standards of ethical responsibility. Upholding ethical standards are as much part of holding the CFA designation as passing the examinations.
The CFA Program is postgraduate. The readings assigned in the study program and the questions on the CFA examinations are geared for individuals who are prepared to deal with “masters” level course work. No specific prerequisite courses of study are prescribed for enrolling in the CFA Program, but applicants should be aware that assigned readings in many topic areas are beyond a basic, introductory level.
CFA Examination Topic Areas
The CFA curriculum is grounded in the practice of the investment profession. The CFA Institute periodically conducts a job analysis involving CFA charter holders around the world to determine those elements of the body of investment knowledge and skills that are important to charter holders in their practice. The table below is a summary of examinable topic areas for CFA level 1 and approximate emphasis (weights) each should receive in the CFA examinations.
