The CFA charter, or Chartered Financial Analyst, is regarded as one of the most respected titles in the investment industry. The CFA Institute provides its global network of over 154,000 qualified members with a system to support career integrity, leadership, and development within the fields of finance and investment. CFA Charterholders benefit from increased credibility among peers and opportunities for career advancement among prominent global firms. The distinction associated with being a CFA charterholder is well earned, with three levels of difficult examinations and a professional practice requirement as part of the charter process.
The CFA program is self-study and most students allocate approximately 300 hours of study per exam. Candidates typically spend between 2 ½ to 5 years to complete the program. To provide CFA candidates with a pace and rhythm, the Amsterdam Business School at the University of Amsterdam has developed comprehensive CFA Prep Courses. The program brings together some of the most accomplished local CFA charterholders to share their knowledge in their specific fields of expertise.
Andrew Pike, managing partner at Pike + Zijlmans and CFA charterholder, teaches Ethics, Corporate Finance, and Equity Valuation at the Amsterdam Business School’s CFA Prep Course. As a seasoned business valuer, Andrew brings years of experience and practical knowledge to the classroom.
The CFA charter is considered the gold standard in investment analysis and can open up many opportunities to its charterholders. For more information regarding CFA Prep Courses at the Amsterdam Business School please visit their website.
