The constant development in the industry scenario has created a demand for experts in the field of Finance.The ever changing scenario also means new ways and means for managing financial portfolios.The need in finance can be filled by a person specially trained to handle financial matters with all its ramifications.In order to fulfill this requirement,a training programme called the Chartered Financial Analyst programme has been brought into being by the Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts. The CFA is not merely an additional qualification,it is a specialisation that gives a person a distinctive advantage over others field.The CFA course enjoys a wide recognition all over the Country.
The Chartered Finanacial Analyst (CFA) credential has become the most respectable and recognised investment designation in the world.
