    CFA Membership Requirements

    Review Before You Apply

     

    We offer two types of membership in partnership with CFA Institute. Regular membership is recommended for CFA Program candidates and is required for award of the CFA charter. For investment professionals who do not plan to pursue the CFA charter, affiliate membership is the appropriate track.

    CFA Regular Membership

    This membership type is recommended for candidates in the CFA Program and required for award of the CFA charter.

    CFA Affiliate Membership

    This membership type is recommended for investment professionals who do not intend to participate in the CFA Program or who have not yet met the requirements for regular membership. Affiliate members receive the same benefits as regular members, however, affiliate members are not eligible for award of the CFA charter and may not vote on CFA Institute proxies. Society membership is required for affiliate membership.
