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. In fact ,bank employees who have completed CFA course are exempted from appearing for certain papers in the various examinations that they are required to appear for.

In order to take admission for CFA course following criteria must be fulfilled by the candidate-

Candidates who are having 4 years of work experience(not needed to be in Investment/Finance) or Student who has completed its graduation or the students who is in Final year of Graduation can apply for Certified Financial Planner Course.

One has to go with the following three levels in order to complete the CFA course each culminating six-hour exam-
1.Level I-Focuses on a basic knowledge of the ten topic areas and simple analysis using investment tools.
2. Level II- Emphasises applications of investment tools and concepts with a focus on valuation of all types of assets.
