Posted by Admin on Aug 20, 2017 6:00:00 PM

IMCA is currently conducting a global study on the future of professional investment advice. If you are a leading practitioner in this global profession, we need your input.

IMCA’s “Future of Investment Advice Study: 2017 CIMA® Job Analysis” examines the activities that comprise the role investment professionals play, and evaluates the knowledge, skills and abilities required to complete those activities effectively. The financial advisory industry is arguably one of the most dynamic sectors in the global economy as new practices, regulations and financial products hit the market daily. IMCA conducts a job analysis regularly to ensure that initial and ongoing certification requirements reflect current professional practice, and to establish the voluntary Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) certification global standard for financial advisors and investment consultants.

Help Define the Future of the Evolving Financial Advice Industry & Help Protect Investors

The survey asks financial advisors, registered investment advisors, investment consultants, and investment analysts to rate the importance of a series of knowledge and skill statements as related to job performance. Once completed, the analysis helps IMCA identify critical information that will be integrated into the CIMA global certification process.
