The Chartered Financial Analyst®(CFA®) designation has become the most respected and recognized investment credential in the world. The path to achieving it is challenging and the CFA® Institute (www.cfainstitute.org) continuously revises the material so that it is up-to-date with current developments in finance.
The CFA® Program requires candidates to study and pass three levels (I, II & III) of exams and meet other requirements, such as relevant work experience in order to be awarded the CFA® Charter®. Each level requires a minimum of 250-300 hours of personal study, although time might vary based on a candidate’s academic background. Overall, the minimum time required to clear all three levels is around 2.5 years (although the overall average is around 4 years).
Financial Arena’s expert instructors can help you pass the exam the first time by focusing your attention on key aspects of each topic.
