Practical knowledge. Real experience.

First launched in India in the summer of 2018, the CFA Institute Young Women in Investment Program is an initiative to create awareness about, instill interest in and provide a route of entry for women into the investment management industry.

CFA Institute has long championed inclusion and diversity efforts in the investment management industry. By offering a training program to young women who may not have previously considered a career in our industry, this program aims to not only increase the talent pool of women but also increase diversity of thought by attracting those without traditional finance backgrounds.

Following successful initiatives in India, Brazil and Qatar, the program was expanded into Europe with Spain, France and UK programs launched in 2022.

Young Women in Investment program UK is partnering with Fearless Girls to provide 20 places to Ukrainian women displaced due to war.
