Such student success speaks to BIBF’s exceptional teaching staff and goal of achieving excellence in every facet of education. The students’ pass rate outscored the global average of 43 percent.
The program centers around 200 hours of lectures presented by trainers, all CFA charter holders, who support and educate each student to be successful within the course and beyond.
CFA qualification is noteworthy because of the degree of difficulty in obtaining the certification. The process is divided into three different levels, beginning with Level I, which includes understanding the 10 topic areas of investment tools and knowledge of how to use them. Those 10 areas of interest include 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.
Level II consists of a comprehensive analysis in addition to a concentration on valuing assets. Level III involves putting the knowledge gained in the two previous levels to use through a number of different applications for wealth and portfolio management.
Levels I and II of the CFA preparatory course that begins in November will be run by the BIBF this year.
“The BIBF will be launching part II of CFA following this achievement to guide potential candidates to succeed in upcoming June 2017 examination,” BIBF Head of Banking and Accounting Deen Jayah said. “Our trainers are committed to providing excellent training and development opportunities using the most effective techniques in learning.”
The program for this class began November 2015.
