CAIA EXAM Overview
The Charter Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) designation is often earned by endowment and pension investment, as well as private equity and hedge fund professionals. The CAIA exams cover: professional standards and ethics, general instruction to alternative investments, hedge funds, real assets (like resources, commodities, and real estate), private equity, structured products, and risk/portfolio management.
For comparison, the CFA curriculum is broad based and covers most facets of financial analysis and investment management; but the CAIA designation is more directed at the alternative investment world. This means it is more likely to cover more complex topics that may be difficult for some candidates to grapple with based on their academic or professional backgrounds.
