Anthony Munchak, a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter holder and a member of the Boston Security Analysts Society, launches an informative website for individuals interested in a rewarding career in finance.
BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 18, 2021 / Anthony Munchak, a Chartered Financial Analyst, is excited to announce the launch of his new website. Visitors to his site will get instant access to an abundance of useful and pertinent information and help readers stay abreast of industry trends. Through regular blogs and articles, Munchak will provide technical tips and valuable content for individuals studying finance, particularly those interested in attaining their CFA certification.
In a recent interview with Thrive Global, Munchak reveals how he got into his field: "I learned about the CFA program in grad school. That was maybe about 25 years ago before it became such a prevalent thing in the industry today."
"It's a certification, so there are three levels of testing and the difficulty increases with each one. The pass/fail rate is, I believe, in the 50-60 percentile for each level, so not everybody makes it through," Munchak adds.
Given that CFA is considered the gold standard in investment analysis, the exams needed to achieve this designation are understandably difficult. Fortunately, Munchak is passionate about helping students understand the CFA requirements and prepare for their exams.
In the same interview, Munchak reveals his highest achievements as completing his Master's degree in finance and earning his CFA certification. "Those were a very difficult six years for me, working full time and going to school at night for at least four years, and studying big time for a couple of years after that. All that work and success culminated in me getting my first portfolio management job at Invesco," he explains.
While he admits that it won't be easy, Munchak's long and rewarding career is a testament to his hard work and persistence. Like Munchak, your career in finance could unlock networking opportunities, increase job opportunities, and provide a comfortable salary.
Munchak will be updating his website routinely to provide the most up-to-date CFA information and industry insights.
