ArticlesTerrible New CFA Ads

The CFA Institute has created some new ads, highlighting the difficulty of the achieving the designation. My favorite parts of the ads:

CFA ad2 To a recruiter, nothing pops off the page like a CFA charter. One glance tells clients that your investment management skills are the gold standard of the industry. That you’ve mastered a three-level program whose coursework is unusually rigorous. And that your ethical standards are the highest possible. Isn’t it time you joined the thousands of CFA charterholders who are writing their own ticket?

CFA Ad1 It’s safe to say that the pursuit of a CFA charter is beyond challenging. The coursework involves a rigorous, three-level program that’s recognized as the gold standard in investment management. If you pass the exams, you’ll have the expertise to take real control of your professional career. That’s because CFA isn’t just something that follows your name. It’s something that builds a following.
