  • Firms are looking for CFA charterholders — and they're willing to pay an 8% premium for them.
  • According to a 2019 study of CFA Institute charterholders and members worldwide, the average self-reported total compensation was nearly double the average base salary rate of US$178,600.
  • 83% of CFA charterholders said it boosted their careers.
