CAIA Level I Coaching


The CAIA curriculum provides breadth and depth by first placing emphasis on understanding alternative asset classes (Level I) and then by building applications in manager selection, risk management and asset allocation (Level II).

The CAIA program asks candidates to work through the curriculum to identify and describe various asset classes, risk-return characteristics of each asset class, the role of each class in a diversified portfolio, the role of active management in investment processes, the manager selection method and risk management.

The Level I curriculum builds a foundation by introducing candidates to alternative asset classes and the role of active management in asset allocation and portfolio construction. The Level I examination, administered twice annually, is a four-hour computerized exam that is offered at test centers throughout the world. The Level I exam is composed of 200 multiple choice questions.
