Founded in 1987, CFA Singapore is the first CFA chapter to be formed outside
of North America and one of the most active societies of the CFA Institute,
the not-for-profit global association of investment professionals that sets the
standard for professional excellence and credentials. CFA Singapore is the 7th
largest society globally with more than 3,500 members and organises about
100 events a year.
The mission of CFA Singapore is to lead the investment profession by promoting
the highest standards of ethics, education and professional excellence for the
ultimate benefit of society. This is implemented by member volunteers through
the following 8 committees: Advocacy, Asset Management, Candidate
Programmes, Career Development, Membership, Networking, Professional
Development & University Outreach.
In October 2016, CFA Singapore appointed Kaplan Learning Institute to be the
exclusive training provider for the CFA Singapore Research Programme Level
