ABOUT THE COURSE
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.
Quartic CFA® learning products
Quartic provides a wide range of learning tools for your CFA Program exams, using leading educational technology to provide comprehensive video libraries, question banks, live online workshops, progress tests and mocks plus all the faculty support you need to help you to prepare for these challenging exams.
Our learning tools are mostly located on the Quartic Online portal, with support from a set course workbooks, in print or e-book format. The e-book technology provides a unique freehand annotation capability, allowing you to sketch diagrams, write out formulae or pensively doodle during instructor-led or video sessions.
The videos and workshops are backed up with Q-banks containing thousands of CFA exam-style questions, each with fully worked or video solutions.
Our Summary Revision Notes and popular new Q SheetTM provide candidates with a summary of all key concepts, invaluable resources during the Revision phase.
Throughout the learning process our teaching faculty are on hand to provide CFA candidates with unlimited support direct from CFA charterholders – by phone, e-mail or Zoom.
Our tutor support is second to none, with the faculty responding to most technical questions within one working day.
Although all Quartic CFA candidates receive the full suite of products, there are different levels of interaction:
This package is designed for self-starters: we provide all your materials and will respond to technical queries with rapid response time.
As well as tutor support from the day you enrol, Gold includes a series of live interactive review sessions in the months prior to the exam. Do not expect to be spoon-fed: these are “video on” and challenging question-based sessions, designed to help candidates consolidate their knowledge, understand the exam process and push their scores up. Groups are small, enabling each candidate to gain from one-to-one conversations. Dates are provided below.
Quartic Executive Mentoring
Time is precious and many candidates are under enormous pressure to juggle work and studying, squeezing as much as possible out of each waking hour. Our mentoring programme is designed entirely around you: one of our faculty tutors (a CFA charterholder is assured) will organise regular one-to-one mentoring sessions with you. These are timed to fit your diary and your personal study plan and the content will include whatever best matches your requirement: coaching on tough technical concepts, question review or exam technique. Mentees may, of course, join any scheduled open session too.
