The program has a practical orientation, and is designed to prepare for the CFA exam level 1 at which the candidates need to demonstrate knowledge of financial instruments and techniques of financial analysis. The content of the CFA Institute program is based on the analysis of problems that can be solved by professionals in the investment field. To this end, CFA Institute is holding discussions with the participation of experts, professionals working in the industry, shareholders and managers, to determine the necessary amount of knowledge and skills for an investment specialist - Candidate Body of Knowledge™ (CBOK).
