Ethan Corman, a portfolio manager at RoseCap Investment Advisors in Grand Junction, has earned designation as a Chartered Financial Analyst.

The CFA designation is recognized as the definitive standard by which to measure the competence and integrity of financial professionals. The graduate-level self-study program covers such topics as corporate finance, economics, ethics and professional standards, international financial statement analysis, quantitative methods, portfolio management and securities analysis and valuation. Candidates must pass a series of three examinations. The process takes most candidates between three and five years.

“I am happy to finally receive my charter,” Corman said. “It represents the successful culmination of hundreds of hours of study and a demonstrated commitment to professionalism and ethics.”

John Bowman, manager director of Americas at CFA Institute, said the program tests knowledge of a broad range of investment topics, while the designation demonstrates mastery of that knowledge. “In the past decade, as the CFA program has been adopted as a worldwide standard, the charter also has become an international passport to work in financial markets anywhere in the world.”
