CAIA L1 - Book
Long time reader, first time poster..
I recently completed my CIM (Chartered Investment Manager) designation in Canada. It’s a theory heavy, calculus light, designation acquired by completing 3 courses.
Since then, I’ve put a lot of time and energy into researching the CAIA and I feel like the subject material really appeals to me. I recently also completed the Fundamentals of Alternative Investments course.
My question is around the material in the Level 1 book. I’m 100 pages in and it’s pretty dense and heavy thus far (IRR, Kurtosis, etc)… is this the norm throughout the book? Has anyone completed the course by using just UM or Kaplan and only leaned on the book in parts?
Ill read the book.. but I’m wondering how best to utilize my time and study for this beast.
Any insights would help.
