The Candidate Membership is the optimal accompaniment on the way to the CFA Charter.

The Candidate Membership of CFA Society Germany offers candidates access to the services of the Society including our network in the German finance and investment community . Level III graduates who have not yet gained the relevant work experience ("Charter Pending") also have the opportunity to become Candidate Members. This allows them to take advantage of the benefits of Society membership during the period until the charter is awarded.
