  1. I know of none. Please post names here, if you know of any. Thanks
  2. Even if someone was rich and had a CFA, would that be a good enough reason to get one? Why would CFA be any indication of wealth? Why you hung up on a certification anyone can get from taking a test?

    I know someone who is wealthy who has a Ph.d in Philosophy but I aint getting one.

    You make money in this world by creating for yourself not blindly following others. A CFA is just a test you pass with common sense investment info found in any investment textbook (Bodie et al...).
  3. I want to create for myself but don't know where to begin. I thought the CFA may allow me to delve into the investment world so I can know the bare minimum of what hedge fund and money managers know. In other words, I need a place to start. usually people go for the MBA but I am considering the CFA as a cheaper and more investment-focussed alternative.

    Thanks for your input.

  4. Here are some names of famous CFA designees. Honestly, I don't know who these people are:


    Abby Joseph Cohen

    Gary Brinson

    Sir John Marks Templeton
