It’s really good to see our advocacy efforts producing so much growth. 2015 has been a very active year for us.
(PRWEB) November 16, 2015
The Market Technicians Association, the governing body for the Chartered Market Technician® (CMT) Program, is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has overwhelmingly approved a new brand logo introduced today with the launch of the organization’s new website.
The Market Technicians Association partnered with several professional services firms on the development of the new brand and made significant investments in its technology platform to “…ensure members’ expectations are met and that we are delivering a first rate experience to everyone who engages with us.” says Tyler Wood, Managing Director of Global Business Development.
Membership in the organization has increased almost 80% since the financial crisis as technical analysis and the organization’s professional designation, the Chartered Market Technician, continue to gain in popularity among investment professionals. The number of people holding the CMT designation more than tripled over the same period.
Mr. Wood added “It’s really good to see our advocacy efforts producing so much growth. 2015 has been a very active year for us. We made significant enhancements to the curriculum, adopted the CFA Institute code of ethics, received approval from the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance for use of the CMT designation and are now introducing a new look for the brand and a better online experience for candidates and members. “
