You need to enter into an agreement with the investor by giving the details of the share market, its  ups and downs as well as the nature and behavior  of the  market without an assurance of any fixed returns. The other terms and conditions are to be chalked out and both have to sign the agreement after agreeing to the terms set out therein.

CFA is a good background as far as the qualification is concerned, but otherwise, the knowledge about the share market and the transactions as well as the intelligence to tackle the crisis  shall be an added advantage to this profession.
