For the time being, the following qualifications have been considered by the PMC for exemption of the required professional qualifications criteria:

       A candidate without qualifications of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA) or Financial Risk Management (FRM) but having at least 20 years relevant experience, holding a managerial position for at least 10 years and being endorsed from the immediate superior or human resources department should enroll and attend the Code of Conduct and Practice of the TMA crash course and meeting other prescribed criteria to attain the TMA Full membership requirement.

Applications under the above exemption criteria will be considered on a case-by-case basis and will be subject to the final decision and approval of the Membership Sub-Committee and Professional Membership Committee of TMA.
