Investment analysts set up CFA Taiwan

Investment professionals in Taiwan have established CFA Association of Taiwan (CFA Taiwan) as the newest affiliate society of the global CFA Institute, in a move to advance the investment profession by enhancing investment knowledge and encouraging high ethical and professional standards throughout Taiwan.
With CFA Taiwan as the 135th professional society to join CFA Institute, the global organization's reach has now expanded to 56 countries and territories.
CFA Institute is the global, non-profit professional association that administers the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) curriculum and examination program worldwide and sets voluntary, ethics-based professional and performance-reporting standards for the investment industry.
A key component of the new society's mission is to raise awareness of the CFA designation in Taiwan's investment industry. The CFA charter is widely recognized as the leading professional designation demanded by investment analysts worldwide.
"The growing numbers of CFA charterholders here is helping to build Taiwan's reputation as one of Asia's pivotal financial markets," said James Su, CFA, newly elected president of CFA Taiwan and fund manager of AIG Global Asset Management Corporation (Taiwan) Ltd.
Currently there are about 330 CFA charterholders in Taiwan. Some of the top employers of CFA charterholders in Taiwan include Citigroup; Cathay; Shin Kong; Yuanta; Jih Sun; Merrill Lynch; Nan Shan; ABN AMRO; Allianz; Capital; KGI; and SinoPac.
