From L-R KC Williams-Cockfield, Director of Libraries; the Hon. Rolston Anglin, JP, Minister of Education, Training and Employment;  Monique Frederick, CFA, FRM, Director, CFA Society of the Cayman Islands; Wendy L. Pirie, Ph.D., CA, CPA, CAIA, CFA, Director, Curriculum Projects , CFA Institute.

Pursuing a career in the financial industry is challenging, and preparing for a professional exam is one of those challenges.

To assist, all essential materials and resources needed to prepare for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam can now be found at the George Town Public Library.

On Friday 27 January, the CFA Society of the Cayman Islands donated a course syllabus to the George Town Public Library. The syllabus spans all three levels of the study programme and is available for public access. The CFA Society annually provides an updated copy to assist candidates with their exam preparations.

The Hon. Rolston Anglin, JP, Minister for Education, Training and Employment, thanked the society for its donation: "Being a financial professional, I know the challenges that come with trying to access current materials while preparing for designation exams. I thank the CFA Society for their generous donation, providing those who are studying for the CFA full and easy access to the materials required.”

Mr. Anglin continued, “I encourage all persons interested in, or working in, the financial sector to visit the George Town Library, examine the materials, and see if the CFA designation is something they'd be interested in pursuing. Life-long learning is something that both I and the Ministry strongly promote and the CFA qualification is just one example of how persons can further their education in the financial field and take their career to new heights."

A representative from the CFA Institute, Wendy L. Pirie, Ph.D., CA, CPA, CAIA, CFA; Director of Curriculum Projects, stated, “We at CFA Institute are pleased to see the interest in the Cayman Islands in the CFA Program and the values of CFA Institute. The support by the CFA Society of the Cayman Islands; the Ministry of Education, Training and Employment; and the Library Services of ethics, education, and professional excellence in the investment industry is much appreciated.”

Monique Frederick, CFA, FRM, Director of the CFA Society of the Cayman Islands said: “We are delighted to once again be in a position to make this donation to the library and wish to continue this tradition going forward. We also hope that those who are curious about the program will visit the library to browse through the curriculum to get a better idea of what the program entails.”
