Jason T. Deitz, Assistant Vice President – Investments & Research, has completed the requirements to receive the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation by successfully passing the Level III exam in June 2010.
The CFA designation is recognized by the investment industry around the world as the gold standard in professional excellence. To earn the CFA charter, candidates must sequentially pass three six-hour exams that are widely considered to be among the most rigorous in the investment profession. The CFA curriculum includes ethical and professional standards, financial reporting and analysis, corporate finance, economics, quantitative methods, equity, fixed income, and alternative investments, derivatives, portfolio management, and wealth planning. Candidates must also have at least four years of full-time experience in an investments-related field, comply with certain ethical requirements, and be granted membership into a CFA society.
