2009 CFAI Compensation Survey

Does anyone know how to locate a copy of the old 2009 CFAI compensation survey? CFAI took it off the website, believing it was not accurately representing reality. I would like to judge for myself. Also, does anyone know of any other related types of surveys?

Is CFA helpful in management consulting?

I have recently completed my CA in the first attempt from India. I am planning on taking up a job with the top management consulting firms. Would taking up CFA provide an edge over the other candidates? Also, would it help in the daily course of my jobwork?

No charter without experience. Unfair?

Hello all,

i am a mechanical engineer aiming for a CFA. I started studying for level 1 December exam.

While I was doing my research, I realized that without proper experience in investments, I wouldn’t be able to get the charter even after passing all 3 levels.

This seems quite odd to me, and a bit unfair. It discourages people from non finance related backgrounds to pursue a CFA.

My only hope now is leaving my current job and finding a job in investments after passing level 1.
