CFA Society Hong Kong (香港特許金融分析師學會) (“the Society”), is a non-profit organization founded in 1992 as The Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts by a group of CFA Charterholders.

The Society shares the mission of CFA Institute in raising the professional and ethical standards of financial analysts and investment practitioners through our advocacy and continuing education efforts. In addition to promoting the CFA designation in Hong Kong, the Society aims to provide a forum for our members, CFA Institute, other investment practitioners and regulators for networking and the exchange of industry insights and best practices.
