CAIA Association Forms Alliance with New York Hedge Fund Roundtable

Monday, May 23, 2011
The Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association, sponsor of the CAIA designation, the highest standard of education in alternative investments, has formed an alliance with the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable. Through this alliance, CAIA has become the official designation of the Roundtable and members of the Roundtable will receive a 10 percent discount on standard exam registration fees for both levels of the CAIA exams.

“The Roundtable is excited to align itself with the CAIA Association, whose program is the gold standard for education in the alternative investment community and whose mission is consistent with our mission of being a thought-leader for the industry,” said Stephen D. Susano, Chief Operating Officer, New York Hedge Fund Roundtable.

“As new regulations emerge, such as the SEC’s requirement that advisors supply evidence of their educational background, more professionals are seeking quality programs to demonstrate the depth and breadth of their industry knowledge,” said Florence Lombard, CEO of the CAIA Association. “The CAIA program has a rigorous curriculum and the designation certifies mastery of alternative investment concepts, tools and practices, and promotes adherence to high standards of professional conduct. We are very pleased the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable endorses the CAIA designation and has partnered with us to offer its members an incentive to earn the designation.”

To qualify for the designation, professionals must successfully pass both the CAIA Level I and Level II exams. The CAIA exams are held twice a year, in March and September, making it possible for candidates to earn the designation within a year of starting the program.
