The CHP program is a two-tiered certification program, for CHP Level 2 details, please click here.
Level 1 of the CHP Program gives participants a broad foundation of knowledge that allows them to gain specialized training in the hedge fund industry.
While nothing can replace years of industry experience, the program aims to increase the breadth of knowledge that current industry professionals hold and assist those individuals transitioning into the hedge fund industry.
With those goals in mind, we have constructed the CHP Level 1 Exam to cover six modules that together provide a strong base of industry knowledge.
The six CHP learning modules cover the following topics:
1) Introduction to Hedge Funds
2) Fund of Hedge Funds
3) Hedge Fund Strategies
4) Hedge Fund Due Diligence
5) Portfolio Management Analytics
6) Hedge Fund Trends
