Half of finance professionals in Asia-Pacific believe their jobs will either disappear or change substantially over the next decade, with some of their work taken over by artificial intelligence and other technologies, according to a poll by CFA Institute.
Globally, this number stands at 48%. The institute, a global association of investment professionals, offers the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation as well as other international professional accreditation. It has now accredited 165,000 professionals in more than 165 countries. More than 250,000 candidates registered worldwide for the three-level CFA exam this month, up 11% over last year.
