Education is a core initiative for the IPA and essential to our strategic plan which includes driving awareness of portfolio diversifying investments (PDI).

We’re excited to announce that two leaders in the industry, iCapital and CAIA, have partnered on the development of a certificate program that marries academic research and practical application on the role and use of alternative investments.

AltsEdgeTM is a product agnostic, research-based educational program specifically designed to provide financial professionals with a foundational understanding of alternative investments, including private market strategies, hedge funds, and registered funds. AltsEdgeTM is a first-class learner experience delivered via a state-of-the art learning management system with engaging videos and assessments.

Individuals who complete the 10-course program can earn 10 CE credits toward the CFP®, CIMA®, CPWA®, ChFC® and other designations while also receiving a professional certificate of completion.
