As the demand for CFA-certified professionals continues to grow, major investment banks, portfolio management companies, and other finance-related firms seek their expertise. 
CFAs can take on various roles in the finance industry, including equity research analyst, investment banker, portfolio manager, risk manager, and financial advisor, among others.
