~Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor
"Artificial intelligence and machine learning do not - yet - have the ability to listen, empathize, and explain the rationale behind recommendations and decisions. These soft skills, or people skills, will always allow our professionals to prove their value to clients."
Former President and CEO, CFA Institute
"You can hire people with an MBA, but you don't necessarily know that one MBA is the same as another MBA, whereas if you hire investment professionals with a CFA designation, you absolutely have confidence at the level of qualification."
COO/President, Franklin Templeton
