On December 14th, 2019, CFA® Community Vietnam, a community of the members of the CFA® Institute and the candidates of CFA Program, celebrated the 11th CFA® Charter Award Ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City for new members.

In 2019, more than 60 investment professionals are qualified and awarded the CFA® Charterholder in Vietnam. The new CFA Charterholders received this prestigious award from representatives from CFA® Institute, in front of over 100 guests who are their relatives and members of the CFA® Institute in Vietnam.

According to Mr. Zouheir Tamim El Jarkass, CFA® – Board member at CFA® Institute Board of Governors: “When an investor sees the letters “CFA” following your name on a fact sheet or on your business card, they can expect unparalleled investment expertise and professionalism. They know that you voluntarily chose to enhance your skills and that you adhere to the highest ethical standards and perhaps most importantly, that they can trust you to put their interests first.”
