We bring over 20 years of expertise in global financial services training and look forward to offering this unique and differentiated program. Read all about it here.


As the global financial industry becomes increasingly competitive, the professionals who succeed are the ones who can demonstrate their ability to add value to an organization. 


Financial Data Professionals help organizations make the most of the data they collect by finding trends, patterns and errors that might otherwise go unnoticed. Successful Financial Data Professionals have the skills to work with data, the acumen to understand the business side of the organization and the ability to communicate that information to people across their organization.

Important Program Update: As the revolution in AI and machine learning deepens its implications for the financial industry, the CAIA Association has partnered with Alpha Development to ensure that the FDP Institute & its Charter Program remain at the forefront of the needs of investment professionals.

Alpha Development has committed to the ongoing delivery of the Charter Program, with the next cohort launching in June 2024 in preparation for a November 2024 examination.
