The BIBF Students exceed global pass rate in CFA Certification

The BIBF is pleased to announce the exceptional results of its students who undertook the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) level I exam in June 2016.

The BIBF students achieved a pass rate that surpasses the global average of 43%.

The quality of BIBF’s teaching staff and its overall commitment to excellence in education has truly been exemplified by the batch’s overwhelming success.

The programme which commenced in November 2015 consisted of 200 hours of lectures conducted by trainers all of whom are CFA charter holders, which allowed candidates to excel in the areas covered.

The CFA qualification demonstrates the commitment to excellence required of today’s investment professionals and is split into three distinct levels. Level I consists of a basic knowledge of the ten topic areas and simple analysis using investment tools, Level II emphasises on more complex analysis along with a focus on valuing assets, and Level III focuses on synthesising all of the concepts and analytical methods in a variety of applications for effective portfolio management and wealth planning.

The ten topic areas in Level I are covered in increasing complexity at each level and consists of Financial Reporting and Analysis, Corporate Finance, Equity Investments, Fixed Income, Derivatives, Alternative Investments, Portfolio Management and Wealth Planning, Ethical and Professional Standards, Quantitative Methods, and Economics.

“The BIBF will be launching part II of CFA following this achievement to guide potential candidates to succeed in upcoming June 2017 examination”, said BIBF’s Head of Banking and Accounting Mr. Deen Jayah. He further added “our trainers are committed to providing excellent training and development opportunities using the most effective techniques in learning”.

The BIBF will be running the CFA preparatory course for level I and II in November this year.
