Job market Statistics

The first quarter of 2016 was extremely active in terms of job postings on CFA Montreal’s website. A total of 47 positions were posted, 10 of which came from Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec as well as 6 from PSP Investments. A total of 22 employers submitted at least one job posting on the website. A majority of the postings were for financial analysts asking for a minimum of 5 years of experience. Portfolio managers, traders and sales representatives were also listed on the website during the last quarter. With over 2400 members, CFA Montreal’s website is an excellent source for job postings. The career opportunities section remains one of the most appreciated services offered by the local Society.


National CFA Charterholder Compensation study

This study was designed to provide Canadian CFA charterholders with compensation information to help with career assessment and planning.
The self-reported data included in this report covers broadly defined positions and, as such, provide members with useful directional frames of reference about pay levels and other key means of compensation. It should be noted that the survey includes only data from a sample of Canadian CFA charterholders and it is not necessarily representative of the full CFA Institute membership or the total population of individuals in these positions or locations.
While salary is a key component of the study, other factors such as prior positions held, deferred compensation, corporate and self-managed AUM, and trends in pay, including base pay, bonuses, stock options, benefits, pensions, and geographic impact were also analyzed.
