CHP Designation

CHP Investment Designation | Update

A class of over 60 participants are currently preparing for the CHP Level 1 Exam next month. The Certified Hedge Fund Professional (CHP) Designation Program continues to grow despite the recent financial crisis. Our team is seeing an increased interest from participants considering the CHP Designation as the hedge fund industry job market becomes more competitive. We are also being contacted by many hedge fund managers who are looking to ensure they have a broad foundation of knowledge on which to run their business.

There are currently over 50 hedge funds and fund of hedge funds which have agreed to join our Advisory Board and over 1,500 individuals who have signed up to learn more about the CHP Designation through our Email Alerts.

The Hedge Fund Group (HFG) is preparing to open registration again on January 15th, 2009 to the first 200 participants who register for the program. The new website for the designation will be available shortly. For now information on the program can be found here: CHP Overview.

Sometimes you will see in the press other groups referring to it as the CHFA - such as within this piece by the Financial Times:
