Dear Aspirant,

I would say that CFA as a career has huge potential in India with the increasing investments in India in the form of FDI, etc and also the startups being coming up in the economy daily. This gives huge scope for financial analysis to companies, individuals and firms.

Would like to tell you that the supply of CFAs is very less than the demand therefore CFAs get outstanding salaries in India and abroad.

More detail son the recognised CFA programme offered by CFA Institute USA: www.cfainstitute.org

Best wishes,
