CFA Exam To Add Big Data, Artificial Intelligence As Topics
The CFA Institute plans to add questions on artificial intelligence, robo-advisory and methods for analyzing big data as it updates its exams — a move that happens to ensure professionals seeking an edge in their careers are familiar with forces driving automation.
The new material will appear on Chartered Financial Analyst tests in 2019, according to Steve Horan, the institute’s managing director of credentialing. It should help draw a broader audience, potentially luring applicants from the financial-technology industry, he said.
