CFA® Level III

The final stage of the CFA Program, Level III has a strong focus on wealth planning and portfolio management. Some of the analytical subjects (accounting and quants in particular) drop from the curriculum, much to the disappointment of many candidates! Instead, you will investigate in detail the requirements and psychology of investors, with asset valuation being primarily from a portfolio perspective: how do shares, bonds, derivatives and alternatives help us to achieve a client’s objectives?

Evaluation and synthesis skills that you gain during the preparation for your final exam will enable you, on successful completion of Level III, to enter your workplace with your head held high: as a CFA charterholder.

Exams

The final paper-based Level III exam will be held in December 2020 in some locations. This exam is 6 hours long, split into a morning and afternoon paper, which at Level III have different styles. The morning paper contains “constructed response” questions. This is a written paper in which each question component requires the candidate to circle an answer, write a few sentences, show a calculation, explain a statement, and so on. The afternoon paper contains four and six-part item sets in the same style as Level II.

From 2021, the Level III exam will move to computer-based testing with two exam windows each year. In 2021, these will be during May and November. The duration of the exam will be approximately 4.5 hours, split into two sessions with an optional break if candidates so wish. The first session will contain “constructed response questions” requiring candidates to enter their typed answers via the computer. The second session will contain a mix of four and six part “item-sets” and will be scored in proportion to their length. The exam will cover all seven topics in the Level III curriculum.

Level III has a strong focus on wealth planning and portfolio management. Some of the previous topic areas are dropped. The Level III curriculum consists of:
