How CFA Charterholders Can Become Investment-Grade Writers (Members Only) (Ended)
In an era of information overload, being able to succinctly articulate an investment thesis is a critical skill for portfolio managers, analysts, product specialists, and other CFA charterholders. But for many investment professionals, turning their ideas into white papers, blogs, client letters, or even emails is an inefficient, time-consuming, and frustrating exercise. In this interactive session, veteran financial writer Scott Wentworth will explain how investment professionals can improve their writing skills by doing something that already comes naturally to them: following a process. Scott will explain the steps of the process that he and other professional writers use, and discuss how "non-writers" can adapt these principles to whatever forms of writing they are required to tackle in their jobs.
