Assurance associates pass the CFA Level 1 exam

Assurance associates Dana Danielle Samson and Karina Ann Aguila (both from the VLS cluster) are one step closer to completing the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program after successfully clearing the first level of the examinations.

Offered by the CFA Institute, the program links academic theory with current industry practice as well as ethical and professional standards. Level 1 tests a candidate’s knowledge of the standards while Level 2 focuses on how one applies those standards to real-world situations. Level 3 also looks at the application of standards, but in a portfolio management and compliance context.

Congratulations to Dana and Karina!
