"My first contact with alternative investments came from my job as Treasury Internal Audit Manager at my former company. I realized that despite my technical knowledge I didn't fully understand all the mechanisms beyond the mere positions in the portfolio. Therefore I decided to take the first exam on my own. The course is very well structured and I found immediate practical applications in my job regarding many issues.
Furthermore this first exam designation helped me to find a new job at one of the biggest fund platforms in Europe
as an alternative investment analyst - Allfunds Bank. The knowledge I acquired in gaining the CAIA qualification helps me in my job. Once I joined this team we began pushing the CAIA designation within the company. We encourage our colleagues to achieve the CAIA designation."
