The global standard for investment professionals and your ticket to the prestigious CFA designation.
The CFA designation is one of the most recognised and rewarding credentials in investment management. The CFA Program is how you earn it. Awarded by CFA Institute, the program is a three-part exam that equips you with real-world investment skills. And, when you pass, you’ll earn the CFA Charter – a huge advantage for your career.
Join the more than 190,000 current investment professionals who are recognised globally for their commitment to ethics and professionalism.
Please note: CFA UK is NOT the awarding organisation for the CFA Program. It is administered and awarded by CFA Institute.
The CFA Program is for anyone who wants to prove their investment knowledge. From portfolio and wealth managers to analysts and students, the Program is a step up in your career. It’s a self-study, master’s level qualification that you can do alongside your current role. The knowledge you’ll learn won’t only help you get the designation – you'll gain skills that last a lifetime.
The CFA Program covers three levels of exams and ten general topic areas. Together, they form the core framework for making investment decisions. You’ll learn more than just theory – you'll gain practical skills and tools that you can apply directly in your day-to-day role. Employers recognise those skills, too – meaning you have an advantage when applying for your next job or promotion.
The CFA Program is a challenge – but you can access support that makes both registering for and taking the exams easier.
If you are unable to afford the fees for the CFA Program, CFA Institute can offer scholarship opportunities based on your needs.
If you’re a CFA UK member, you can access CFA Program mock exams. You can also enjoy other member benefits to help you get the edge.
You don’t need to study for the CFA Program alone. Instead, access tuition support from a registered CFA Institute Prep Provider. Most providers will offer learning materials, lecture slides, sample questions and learning support alongside classroom training. You can take short revision courses or full-time programmes – either way, you're in control.
Kaplan, BPP, Fitch Learning, Quartic and Wiley are just some of the prep providers that can help you move forward, faster.
The CFA Program is the gold standard. Learn new skills, grow your career, and earn your designation.
