You’ve (almost) got through your 300 hours of revision for the CFA exams on June 3. Provided you pass (only about 43% of people even get through Level I), it’s worth thinking about how the CFA might help you land a well-paid job in Hong Kong financial services.
We looked through our CV database and identified the 10 job sectors which have the most Hong Kong-based candidates with the CFA (at any level) on their resumes.
We then reviewed four 2017 recruiter salary surveys to determine average base salaries for VPs (people with around six years’ experience) for key jobs in these CFA-friendly sectors.
If you’re taking the CFA to make a lucrative career change, the functions towards the top of the table are the ones you’ll want to work in.
