How does CSI Promote the DFSA Designation?

CSI works hard to promote the DFSA letters on behalf of our designation holders. Our goal is to build awareness of the DFSA by emphasizing its value to the financial services community, employers and the investing public. We do this annually through advertising and public relations campaigns across print, digital and out-of-home (public) media.
