CFA Institute

CFA Institute is a global community of more than 145,000 investment professionals working to build an investment industry where investors’ interests come first, financial markets function at their best, and economies grow. This starts with training investment professionals to the highest educational and professional standards but CFAI also knows that it can only function at its best when all market participants are well informed.That’s why CFA Institute and its global community of members, local societies, and regulatory, academic, and institutional partners are working to build a stronger, more accountable investment industry on many fronts. In addition to developing and offering the globally respected CFA and CIPM credentials and the Claritas Investment Certificate, CFAI develops and promotes professional standards like the Asset Manager Code of Professional Conduct and the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) that help guide individuals and firms around the world to act with competence and integrity and help to shape a stronger, more accountable investment industry.

The Asia-Pacific Research Exchange (ARX) is a research hub that brings together like-minded finance and investment management professionals to share, learn and engage on industry topics and trends specific to the Asia-Pacific region. “The mission of the Asia-Pacific Research Exchange is to enhance the knowledge and understanding of investment management issues impacting the region through a platform based on contribution and engagement amongst peer practitioners.” Initiated and developed by CFA Institute, ARX is user-driven and accepts contributions from finance and investment management industry professionals, government, regulators, academia, CFA charterholders and candidates. Relevant knowledge products from Think-Asia are also carried on ARX by arrangement.
