Will your salary increase as you go through the CFA Program?
Yes, it does. And you don't even have to wait until you become a CFA charterholder.
Proper, reliable CFA salary data are hard to come by, so we started our own years ago to help our readers. The key differentiator of our CFA salary analysis is the removal of the "work experience / seniority effect" on average total compensation, so that we can better capture the true effect of CFA Program on average pay.
Thanks to you all, here is our updated, second iteration of analyses that helps you evaluate the benefits of the CFA Program, as well as a few other useful compensation insights.
