“My CAIA journey has been nothing less than extraordinary. On a whim I entered a competition for a CAIA scholarship from the Australian Women in Alternatives, and to my great delight and surprise I won.
The course work was vast, completely comprehensive and without doubt the most relevant study that I have completed. My motivation was to up-skill myself in order to have meaningful conversations with the largest investors in the world. Not only do I now have an in depth understanding of a broad range of concepts and asset classes amongst alternative investments, but I can talk to institutional investors peer to peer rather than simply another sales person.”
