                      • Ideally, if you are a CFA® Level 1 cleared candidate in India then you should be able to get approx Rs 6 Lacs.
                      • if you have cleared CFA® Level 2 then approx your package should be around Rs 8 to 9 lacs depending upon the profile.
                      • If you have cleared CFA® Level 3 then ideally in MNC banks you should be able to command around Rs 12 Lacs annually.

                      CFA® examinations are challenging and you will need to be extremely disciplined and focused to complete the charter. Candidates are required to pass three levels of exams covering areas, such as accounting, economics, ethics, money management, and security analysis.

                      Books to be used:

                      • Get the Schweser Notes and Question from the Book Seller.
                      • Get Texas Instrument Calculator [ BA II Plus]

                      Strategy for Preparation:

                      • It is very important to strike a balance between work life and studies. Try to study as much as 2-3 hours per day and try solving as many questions as possible.
                      • Focus on identifying difficult topics and revise them 2 to 3 times before the exam.
                      • Since you get very little time to study, it is better that you stick to third-party notes instead of CFA®  institute material as they are concise and cover all the topics.
                      • You can prepare a timetable and try to follow it. Question bank solving is a must as it makes you efficient and makes you aware of the exam environment.
                      • Last-minute recaps are very beneficial as it refreshes your concepts.
                      • Dedicate the last 4-5 weeks only for mock tests as it helps you in understanding your strong and weak areas
                      • If you are dedicated and focused, then you will be well prepared for your exams.

                      Overall the curriculum of CFA® Level 1 is trying to give the candidate a flavor of the different aspects of the financial market and business so that candidate can be decided his interest accordingly.

                      Generally, taking into consideration their background, candidates prefer to start preparing from the subjects they are comfortable with and so, there is no particular sequence of topics.

                      • However, if you are from a non-finance background,it is recommended that you start with the time value of the series which is included in the Quantitative Methods as it forms the base for other topics and is used extensively in other modules.
                      • You can then go for Portfolio Management and Corporate Finance Topic
                      • The Financial Reporting and Analysis module should be considered next as it is time-consuming. This includes a good understanding of Accounts and Financial Statement
                      • Then you can go for Derivative, Alternative Investment, and Fixed income Together
                      • Post which you can start for Ethics and Economics
                      • Being from a non-finance background, it is important that you start 6-7 months prior to the exams and dedicate 1–2 hours daily to studying. Initially, start with CFA® institute books, and later as time progresses start referring to third-party books.
                      • Put more hours on weekends like 4 – 5 hours for preparation
                      • Put in More hours for Financial Reporting and Analysis, Economics, and Ethics books as these are the topics which I feel are where Non-Finance Students face a lot of problems
                      • Try solving as many question banks as possible to get used to an exam-like environment and to increase efficiency.
                      • Dedicate last month for mock tests and recaps as they are very beneficial. In short, it is important that you start early and focus on understanding the concepts as it is the key to clearing CFA® examinations.

                      Some of the career scopes for CFA® professionals are quality data analysis, consultant, trader, real estate, fixed income, investment banking, etc. The CFA® professionals can also widen their scope if they acquire other skill sets connected to the industry.
