The institute offered additional insights on its most recent examination.

For instance, women now account for more than 39% of CFA candidates and some markets, like the UK and Australia, have reached gender parity for the first part of the exam. The number of females taking the examination has more than doubled over the last five years.

Part of the reason for the record numbers is also because the institute has expanded the number of test centers that offer the exam, adding sites and places like Cambodia and Myanmar. The exam was offered at 343 test centers in 192 cities this past summer and the new CFAs will add to the ranks of 167,000 who already carry the charter.

The CFA Institute will offer computer-based testing for candidates starting in 2021, which will allow candidates to choose their own exam date within new test taking windows.
