Interactive Dashboard Access the Data (member login required) CFA Institute Member Content
In response to member requests and to support career planning, CFA Institute partnered with a third-party firm to conduct an online compensation survey of all members globally. Using data from more than 15,000 members, we developed an executive summary and interactive dashboard that highlight key respondent profile and compensation themes and trends. The dashboard organizes the compensation survey results by region, country, select metropolitan areas, organization type, occupation, and select demographic elements, where sample size permits.
Use the dashboard to
