Candidate Education
Dear CFA® Candidate,

We are pleased to learn that you have registered for the 2017 June CFA® examination. While today that date may seem like an eternity away, successful candidates realize that the time passes all too quickly and know the importance of getting an early start. The Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts (HKSFA) recognizes the commitment required to pass each challenging level and understands the time constraints each candidate faces in preparing for the exam.

To help supplement your individual study efforts, HKSFA is offering the following programs for candidates in Hong Kong. These programs are designed to help you maximize your study efforts and master the CFA exams successfully.
We sincerely hope you will take advantage of these programs HKSFA is providing this year.  We look forward to your participation and send our very best wishes for success in the exam!

Yours sincerely,

Study Groups

Many candidates find that meeting with a group of candidates on a regular basis helps them better structure their study time and remain motivated. The study groups may meet at an agreed-upon time in a location convenient to all of the candidates in the group. The study group meetings serve as an excellent forum for discussing the CFA reading material and sharing both expertise and moral support. An added plus is that you are able to meet others in the industry and build your network of contacts.

Please let us know of your interest in participating in a study group (for June 2017 Exam) by completing the application form and returning it to us by 30th November 2016. We shall try to group you with those who share your time and location preferences if possible. You will be advised of the details of your group in December 2016. Please note that we only accept applications from candidates who have registered for the 2017 June exam. This service is free of charge.
