While you’re working towards your CFA® Program Exam, you don’t have much time to think about anything else. However, it’s a demanding market and you need to make sure you stand out. Earning your CAIA, CMT or CIMA certification in addition to your CFA not only expands your credentials, but sets you apart.
CFA professionals can also apply to sit for the CIMA Investment Management certification, bypassing the CIMA executive education component of the process. This exemption will run until the end of 2020.
The benefits are clear – in an industry where standing out from the crowd has never been more important, holding multiple designations is a great way to show your expertise, your willingness to progress and frankly, how hard you’re willing to work.
So, whether your goal is career advancement, enhancing your credibility or just continuing your professional development, this is an opportunity you can’t afford to miss.
