CFA Institute engages Centralis to assess the educational needs of financial analysts worldwide

March 10, 2008: CFA Institute, the global association for investment professionals, has asked Centralis to conduct international research on the educational needs of CFA charterholders and candidates. As part of their ongoing work together on the CFA Institute’s website, Centralis will meet with users in Chicago, London and Singapore to explore their reactions to proposed design concepts, content and functionality.

Findings from this research will guide the design of a new information architecture for the CFA Institute website that speaks to the unique needs of CFA charterholders, CFA candidates and the general public.
