“CFA® is the highest designation one can achieve in finance; and more specifically in financial analysis. It has the breadth and depth that make a CFA® charter holder an all-round player in all aspects of financial analysis. Of course, in order to achieve this, one needs dedication and commitment; approximately than 300 hours for each level. This commitment and dedication shown by the CFA® charter holders is also one of the strongest assets in the market.
As markets evolve, so does the CFA® institute. The program is now offered as a computer-based test (CBT) and more than once a year. This change not only adapts to more modern testing techniques, but also saves time between exams. StudySmart® is the provider most suitable to help you in this study process.
The CFA® charter was and will remain the most marketable certification across the industry. Not only because it’s a standardized test that demonstrates the depth and breadth of one’s knowledge across universities and curricula, but also because it is one of the most demanding certifications.
While the CBT will ease the testing process, the requirements and skills necessary to pass each exam remain the same. The basis is, of course, the deep understanding of the finance concepts covered in the curriculum. But passing each exam is much more than that. Continuous dedication and commitment are necessary. Sacrifices are also something that a CFA® candidate should be accustomed to. One needs to sacrifice a lot of free-time and dedicate this time to studying. StudySmart® facilitates this process a lot by focusing on the most crucial topics and by simplifying complex topics during teaching so that these complex topics are understandable when the time to study comes.
In short, earning the CFA® charter is a commitment that is really marketable both in hard currency (job opportunities), but also in soft skills since CFA® charter will lift the holder’s technical skill sky-high.”
