What Is a CFA Charter?
A Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) charter is a designation given to those who have completed the CFA® Program and completed acceptable work experience requirements.
The CFA Program is a three-part exam that tests the fundamentals of investment tools, valuing assets, portfolio management, and wealth planning. The CFA Program is typically completed by those with backgrounds in finance, accounting, economics, or business. CFA charter-holders earn the right to use the CFA designation after program completion, application, and acceptance by CFA Institute. CFA charter-holders are qualified to work in senior and executive positions in investment management, risk management, asset management, and more.
