OBJECTIVES

The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) is a prestigious professional designation for finance and investment analysts. The examination is conducted once a year every June for Level 2 & 3 exams and twice a year in June and December for Level 1 exams and is facilitated simultaneously worldwide by the CFA® INSTITUTE.

The rapid growth in the investment and financial worlds has spurred the need to create a standard which investors and employers to rely when dealing with investment and financial professionals. The need for this standard has stimulated the growth in the number of CFA® participants since the CFA® program is known for its high standards for course content, integrity, and professionalism.

CFA®standards are recognised internationally. There are many MBA programs and business schools, but there is only one CFA® designation. Some of the organizations that employ CFA® Charter holders are investment and management companies, consulting companies, investment bankers, insurance, pension funds, banks and other financial institutions.

The demand for CFA ® Charter holders is significantly high; in contrast, there are only 100 CFA® Charter holders in Indonesia. There are a number of multinational companies that require at least CFA® Level 1 as a prerequisite for employment for certain professions.

The development of the CFA® Program has been exponential – There are currently 82,000 CFA® Charterholders worldwide.In the United States, the CFA® charterhas earned its prestige on the strength of its practical approach and thorough testing on the subject areas covered. Administered for the first time in 1963, the CFA® designation is awarded by the CFA® INSTITUE, and given to the professionals that fulfill these requirements:

  • Passed three exam levels (6 hours per exam) on a consecutive basis and within a minimum of three years.
  • A minimum work experience of four years in the field of investment decision-making.
  • Adherence to the CFA® INSTITUTE Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.
