CIPM® Program Curriculum
The CIPM Program curriculum is based on an advanced body of knowledge that is continuously reviewed and updated by more than 1,000 active investment practitioners around the world to ensure it reflects the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to succeed in the current financial climate.
Approximately 70% of the program covers advanced performance evaluation and 30% covers ethical and professional standards, including the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®).
CIPM Program Topic Area Weights
These weights guide the curriculum and exam development processes. Actual exam weights may vary slightly from year to year, and some topics are combined for testing purposes.
