      Hey all!! 
      So m planning to write the Dec’15 level 1 exam and recently i have been approached for a job of opening pension plans accounts of people, which is a government scheme. My job will be to open monthly, quarterly or yearly accounts of people ill be provided with and also if i can find someone who wants to be a part of this scheme. So will this job be in any way relevant to the 4 years of work ex required?

      well yea that is what it is in simple terms.. after reaching a certain age people would get money every month as pension. Even i think i won’t be relevant.. but thought i should at least ask it, as it does involve a sort of investment, not really sure if it qualifies the definition of the work ex mentioned on CFA website.. which says 50% of the work must involve decision making process and i don’t think if i will be doing that.. ill just be providing advice at most.

      Anyone else has any thoughts on it?

        In simple terms you’re selling insurance. According to me that isn’t really investment or financial work but I may be wrong because I don’t have much of an idea about what qualifies as job experience. Don’t take my word for it though.

          I would suggest that does not satisfy the requirements of “qualifying work experience”. You will be in effect selling an investment service, not actually contributing the investment analysis/decision making process. For the experience to qualify, you have to add value to the investment process itself.

            I have cleared CFA level 3 , and I have valid 4 years teaching experience as a FULL time instructor teaching CFA subjects at a private institute.
            Still my work experience was rejected and reason listed was ‘more info needed’.
            What should I write in order to have my work experience approved.
