CFA新增加密货币和区块链考试内容

据彭博社报道,CFA协会将在明年首次将加密货币和区块链的主题添加到其一级和二级课程中。2019年考试的材料将于8月发布。

通过问卷调查和焦点小组访谈的方式得知金融行业从业者对加密货币和区块链有着浓厚的兴趣。因此,CFA在《金融科技公司的投资管理》的新阅读材料中,添加了加密货币和区块链主题,将与人工智能、大数据一同出现。

弗吉尼亚州夏洛茨维尔CFA研究所普通教育和课程总经理Stephen Horan表示:更多的加密主题,如虚拟货币和经济学的交集,将可能会被添加到课程中。

“这对我们来说是有益的,因为我们的投资领域已经大量扩展和采用加密技术,”哥伦比亚大学的金融经济学学生凯登李说。他在6月份参加了CFA一级考试并且实习他在暑假期间在新加坡担任基金分析师。

除此之外,加密货币和区块链的主题也将出现在CFA关于职业道德的读物中。

有人认为职业道德在加密世界中是缺乏的,许多虚拟货币项目在合法的灰色区域运营,数字资产交易所和ICO更是充斥着欺诈,市场操纵,洗钱和盗窃的例子。

也有人提出质疑:财务分析是否适合加密世界?

他们认为,财务分析是以企业历史数据来判断未来发展趋势,这种以历史判断未来的的方法在分析那些具有一贯稳定特性的行业时比较有效的,但在不确定性极大的加密世界是失效的。

新加坡加密货币交易公司QCP Capital Pte的管理合伙人认为:“更多的教育总是好的”。

It might be the definitive sign that cryptocurrencies have arrived on Wall Street.

CFA Institute, whose grueling three-level program has helped train more than 150,000 financial professionals, is adding topics on cryptocurrencies and blockchain to its Level I and II curriculums for the first time next year. Material for the 2019 exams will be released in August, giving candidates their first opportunity to start logging a recommended 300 hours of study time.

CFA added the topics, part of a new reading called Fintech in Investment Management, after industry participants showed surging interest in surveys and focus groups. The worlds of finance and crypto have become increasingly intertwined after last year’s Bitcoin boom, with regulated futures now trading in Chicago, blue-chip firms like Goldman Sachs Group Inc. dabbling in digital assets, and scores of Wall Streeters joining crypto-related startups.

While digital coins have tumbled in 2018 and the real-world impact of blockchain ventures has thus far been limited, some observers say the technology could ultimately transform swathes of the global financial system.

“We saw the field advancing more quickly than other fields and we also saw it as more durable,” said Stephen Horan, managing director for general education and curriculum at CFA Institute in Charlottesville, Virginia. “This is not a passing fad.”

The CFA material on crypto and blockchain will appear alongside other fintech subjects including artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data and automated trading. More crypto topics, such as the intersection of virtual currencies and economics, may eventually be added to the curriculum, Horan said.

“It will be beneficial for us, since there’s been a huge expansion and adoption of crypto in our investment universe,” said Kayden Lee, 27, a financial economics student at Columbia University who took the CFA Level I exam in June and is interning as a fund analyst in Singapore during his summer break.

“But more importantly the focus is on fintech and blockchain,” Lee said. “How it works to improve, unravel or even disrupt certain sectors.”

The new topics will also make an appearance in the CFA readings on professional ethics, an area that some say is lacking in the crypto world. Many virtual currency projects operate in a legal gray zone, while digital-asset trading venues and initial coin offerings are rife with examples of fraud, market manipulation, money laundering and theft. Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency, has lost more than half its value this year amid growing regulatory scrutiny and a series of exchange hacks.

A record 227,031 people in 91 countries and territories registered to take CFA exams in June, seeking a better understanding of finance, improved job prospects or some combination of the two. A majority of the candidates came from Asia, which also happens to be where much of the world’s virtual currency trading takes place. About 45 percent of Bitcoin transactions are paired against the Japanese yen, according to CryptoCompare.com, while Korean crypto exchanges are some of the world’s largest.

It’s positive that organizations like CFA are drawing attention to the space, said Darius Sit, a former foreign-exchange and bond trader at BNP Paribas SA who’s now managing partner of cryptocurrency trading firm QCP Capital Pte in Singapore. “More education is always good.”
