Finance society donates key study material to library

| 29/01/2015 | 0 Comments

(CNS): The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute has donated a complimentary set of the CFA curriculum for 2015 to the local library service.  The CFA Society Cayman Islands gave the books to the George Town Library to enable all residents in Cayman to have access to the latest edition, which spans all three levels of the study programme that leads to the CFA certification.    

President of the local Society, Monique Frederick, said it was one way the society could encourage students and professionals to consider pursuing the CFA designation or use this resource as reference material.

“In its efforts to assist in improving financial knowledge and literacy on island, the Society, in partnership with Radio Cayman, will now also commence a monthly talk show focused on investment related topics,” she said.

The books were recently handed over to officials, including Education Minister Tara Rivers,  who said the annual donation allows people studying for the examinations access to the most up-to-date material.

“Because of the generous donation of the CFA Institute and CFA Society Cayman Islands, those living in the Cayman Islands who wish to pursue their professional designation as a Chartered Financial Analyst can easily access the resources they need for their studies free of charge,” the minister said.  “I would like to thank both organisations for their continued support and annual donation.  I would also like to thank the Cayman Islands Public Library Service for making these materials available to the public.”
