Daniel Capocci, CAIA

“I am proud to be CAIA Charter Holder because over the last few years, despite the issues faced by the alternative investment industry, the CAIA program has gained in attractiveness, not only for professionals who are working on alternative investments, but also for generalists who want to diversify their knowledge.  The CAIA program is comprehensive in this regard.”
