"Completing the CAIA designation was the beginning of my alternative investment education. It helped give me a broad scope of knowledge in asset classes that I previously had limited exposure to during my formal investment education. CAIA provided me with a strong foundation in alternatives, on which I have been able to develop particular expertise in hedge funds, private equity and real estate."
