      I work in the Oil and Gas industry. What are the types of jobs that will allow you to maintain a CFA certification in the O&G. I am interested in trading. As something that i would like to eventually get in to. Not sure if it will allow me to keep it though. if i get a job. 
      I know probably a business development or corporate finance could be an avenue.

      Thank you,

      Hi there, I don’t follow your question fully actually. Once you obtained your CFA charter, my understanding is that there’s no specific type of job nature or role that is required to ‘maintain’ it except to pay the membership fees for the right to use the CFA designation behind your name.

      Thoughts anyone else?

      Are you trying to stay in Oil and Gas and in Oklahoma?

      Dallas and Houston have tons of jobs where you can combine the two. I know there are several hedge funds that trade here in DFW that focus on the energy sector.

      Investing in gas and oil is not as complicated as people think, primarily if you work in this domain. It’s not like Forex or Cryptocurrency. Oil and gas come from nature. Due to ecology and large consumptions, there are weekly reports on this theme. They tell us the number of rigs in operation. If the rings increase, the prices fall and vice-versa. This is as complicated as it can get. There are even companies, like, that can significantly help in this subject. So yeah, it’s a good form of investment.
