CFA Designation

Robert Hopkins has earned the right to use the CFA designation and wants to indicate this on his business card. According to CFA Institute Standards of Professional Conduct, which of the following is the proper use of the professional designation on his business card? A) Robert Hopkins, cfa B) Robert Hopkins, C.F.A. C) Robert Hopkins, CFA Charterholder

C? Seems kind of clunky though



100% C.

I put B even though I knew it was wrong. C didn’t seem right either. Your answer: B was incorrect. The correct answer was C) The CFA designation should always be capitalized and shown without periods. The CFA designation should not be referred to as a degree. Placing the designation “CFA” or “CFA Charterholder” after one’s name on a resume, business card, brochure, or other published material is appropriate.

naaah, anyway, a an b are out of the picture forever. You have to capitalize and you cannot put period in the CFA It’s C , but again the wording is bad. Because they use the whole word CFA Charterholder. it should be Robert Hopkins, a CFA Charterholder.

I think you can’t say “a CFA”

You can definitely say “a CFA Charterholder”.

Ahh can we? thanks

No problem. I remember I got confused on that before and looked it up.

what a jerk Robert Hopkins is?
