Chartered Investment Analyst candidates planning to prepare for the CAIA exam should become familiar with the official information provided by the Chartered Investment Analyst Association. The CAIA Charter Exam Curriculum is periodically updated by the CAIA Association and Examiners in order to reflect the up-to-date content including but not limited to those pertinent to industry trends, regulatory procedures, market data, practical knowledge.

An emphasis on the academic basis such as quantitative models and conceptual foundations shall constitute a significant portion of candidates' CAIA test preparation. The entire curriculum for the CAIA Exam to be reviewed is split into two levels, Level I and Level II, which are tested separately. Candidates preparing for CAIA Level I Exam can continue to review for CAIA Level II Exam upon successful completion of the course and passing the board examination with a satisfactory score.

Preparation for CAIA Level I exam closely follows the topic distribution in prioritization of the review course and tutoring content. Instructors author the review content based on the students' general level of preparedness for the CAIA exam, which can be determined with an initial diagnostic exam. Areas for CAIA Level I review will focus on the topics distribution, sorted based on the approximate weight presented on the Level I exam, as follows:

Level I Tested Curriculum

Weight

Introduction to Alternative Investments 20-28%
Professional Standards and Ethics 15-25%
Hedge Funds 12-20%
Private Equity 11-17%
Real Assets including Commodities 11-17%
Structured Products 10-14%


Candidates preparing for the CAIA exam should note that some questions may be categorized under more than one topic category, and thus review the concepts not only under individual headings of chapters but also within the greater scope of alternative investments exam. Tutors can herein guide students as a customized study plan is devised so as to maximize chances of success on the CAIA exam.

Review for CAIA Level II exam also follows the topic distribution in arrangement of the CAIA prep course and tutoring content. Teachers prioritize the review content based on the students' performance on CAIA Level I exam as well as on the general level of readiness of candidates for the CAIA exam - a process once again encompasses an analysis of an initial diagnostic exam. Areas for CAIA Level II review will focus on the topics distribution, dependent upon the approximate weight tested on the Level II exam:

Level II Tested Curriculum

Weight

Models 8-12%, 0-10%*
Institutional Asset Owners and Investment Policies 8-12%, 0-10%*
Risk and Risk Management 8-12%, 0-10%*
Accessing Alternative Investments 8-12%, 0-10%*
Methods for Alternative Investing 8-12%, 0-10%*
Due Diligence and Selecting Strategies 8-12%, 0-10%*
Volatility and Complex Strategies 8-12%, 0-10%*
Current and Integrated Topics 0%, 10%*
Ethics, Regulation, and ESG 0%, 10%*

A preliminary consult during the Atclyff student enrollment step with tutors/instructors will identify the importance of incorporation of each topic in the CAIA review as per the candidates' level of competency for aforementioned topics. The CAIA exam prep encompasses the official CAIA exam review material, which can be obtained at the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association CAIA study tools website.

Previous Atclyff CAIA prep, review, and tutoring experience has demonstrated that private instruction in an individual tutoring setting has benefited candidates saving valuable resources of the professionals, while maximizing chances of a first time pass on the CAIA exam. Alternatively, group instruction may deliver CAIA review to students who have a general good command of all areas, needing a quick refresher on CAIA exam prep topics. Custom CAIA review study schedules and CAIA prep formats are available.

Expert tutors who have prepared repeat CAIA test-takes with prior unsuccessful attempts can help such candidates achieve a passing score with a dedicated and focused review of the CAIA exam material. Academic challenges and/or sub-optimal professional experience in one or multiple topics tested on the CAIA exam can be remedied with an intelligent study plan via a closely monitored CAIA tutoring study calendar. Accelerated CAIA review options are available for CAIA candidates who have limited time to get ready for the CAIA exam.
