DeAWM partners with CAIA


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has formed a new partnership with the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association.

In response to the global growth of alternative investment products, DeAWM is partnering with the CAIA Association to offer the Fundamentals of Alternative Investments Certificate Program to its client coverage and investment professionals globally.
DeAWM is the first asset manager to require certification of its retail coverage in the Americas.
“As DeAWM looks to leverage its alternative investment expertise for retail investors, we are excited to partner with CAIA,” says Robert Kendall, head of DeAWM retail distribution, Americas. “The Fundamentals of Alternative Investments Program will only enhance DeAWM’s ability to provide the best investment solutions to its clients.”
In this newly-created programme, DeAWM’s retail distribution team will be required to complete a course consisting of 20 one-hour modules. It includes an overview of portfolio construction, risk management and due diligence, along with in-depth sections on hedge funds, real assets, private equity, commodities and structured products and is taught by CAIA’s experts in alternative investment education.
“The Fundamentals of Alternative Investment Certificate Program fills a critical knowledge gap in alternative investments education,” said Keith Black, CAIA’s managing director of curriculum and exams. “The programme is a natural extension of CAIA’s mission to provide solutions to specific market needs for alternative investment education.”
The CAIA Association created the course in collaboration with IMCA, which delivers investment consulting and wealth management credentials and education. The programme is accepted for continuing education hours for the CIMA, CIMC, CPWA, and CFP designations.
