Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA)



The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program is a professional certification offered by the CFA Institute.  

After completing the program and satisfying other professional requirements you are awarded a ‘CFA charter’ and becomes a ‘CFA charterholder’.

If you would like to have a career in finance, invest management, financial analysis of stocks, bonds and their derivative assets; then CFA can be a good option to pursue. Remember, CFA is a professional credential and not an academic degree.

CFA Curriculum:
The CFA curriculum consists of three levels:
  • Level I: Basic knowledge of investment tools, analysis
  • Level II: Analysis with application
  • Level III: Effective portfolio management and wealth planning


You can take one exam level per year. Thus you can complete the three level exams in a span of three years if you clear them in 1st attempt.

CFA Exam Format:
  • Level I: Multiple choice
  • Level II: Item set
  • Level III: Essay questions and Item set
