kalps John cannot say he is a CFA (noun, should state that he is a CFA charterholder or he has been awarded to use the CFA designation
shasha but on John's name card, it's ok to print "John, CFA".
Gina ... as long as his CFA designation is not suspended.
SueLiu Don't forget the dues! (That is such underhanded bullsh*t by the way!)
sunilcfa One of our previous clients was a cfa and he used to state cfa across his name in his biz card, letter heads, and emails. I am sure its allowed like that, but cannot say "A CFA" but "I am a CFA (charterholder" may be written or not) ..." may be allowed i suppose.
