The Financial Information Associate (FIA) certification is the first formal accreditation for market and reference data practitioners and will only be awarded to those who pass this formal examination.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Please note that we have recently refreshed and updated both the Syllabus and the associated FIA exam. Until March 31, 2016 we will offer the option of you either taking the "old syllabus" OR the new 2016 version. After March 31, 2016 we will only offer the 2016 version of the exam (note that retakes of the "old syllabus" will be available until June 30, 2016). Please take special care when selecting which exam you wish to sit. It is strongly recommended that you double check with whoever you received your training from as to which exam you should sit.
