Why Hire a CFA® Charterholder?

There are many reasons why leaders across the investment industry trust their firms’ futures to CFA charterholders.

Earning the CFA charter is a highly selective process. Fewer than one in five candidates become a CFA charterholder.

To earn the distinction of being called a CFA charterholder requires an average of 1,000+ hours of rigorous study, four years of professional experience and completion of the CFA Program exam.

All CFA charterholders are required to annually attest to their compliance with the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

The CFA credential is the professional standard of choice for more than 31,000 investment firms worldwide.

Learn how the CFA Program can benefit your organizations on the CFA Institute website.
