Overview

CFA Institute is a global community of investment professionals working to build an investment industry where investors’ interests come first, financial markets function at their best, and economies grow. They are driven by the belief that lasting economic growth depends on trust, competence, and transparency in financial markets, and they know that it must be led by professionals who are ethically centered and professionally trained. No credential is as widely regarded in the global financial industry for its rigorous focus on current investment knowledge, analytical skill, and ethical standards as the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
