The Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association (CAIA) reported on its website in 2011 that it offers "the only globally-recognized designation" for expertise in alternative investment tools, concepts and practices. The association says it promotes adherence to high standards of professional conduct. The designation, according to the association, is prestigious. As a result, people with the designation may wish to place it on their resume to show that they have special expertise in investments.
Select a functional format for your resume. A functional resume allows you to list accomplishments and honors at the top. This offers the opportunity to draw immediate attention to the CAIA designation. Another format for resumes, the chronological format, typically places honors and awards near the bottom of the resume.
Create a heading at the top of the resume called "relevant experiences and accomplishments." Make this the first resume heading after your name and address and the career objective heading.
List the CAIA designation as the first item under relevant experiences and accomplishments. List it as: "CAIA Designee (Year). The Global Mark of Distinction in Alternative Investments is the only globally recognized certification for expertise in alternative investment tools."
