CAIA’s Fundamentals of Alternative Investments Certificate Program


A leading financial investment firm, Sheaff Brock Investment Advisors provides customized portfolio management services for individuals with high net worth from its office in Indianapolis, Indiana. Sheaff Brock has key personnel who belongs to the Chartered Alternative Investment Analysis (CAIA) Association, which offers alternative investment education through the Fundamentals of Alternative Investments (AI) Certificate Program.

The Fundaments of AI Program provides financial professionals with a basic understanding of core concepts in alternative investments through a 20-hour online course. Designed for individuals whose roles do not require a high level of expertise in AI, it enables participants to work at their own pace and enroll in the course at any time of the year. The curriculum consists of several one-hour sections that conclude with a 10-question open-book quiz. Upon finishing the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion from the CAIA Association. 

CAIA recommends the program for a range of financial professionals and personnel in related roles, including accountants, financial advisors, marketing personnel, and legal counsel. Completion of the program does not provide membership in the CAIA Association.
