Career Advancement

According to 2021 AFP Compensation Survey various factors influence a financial professional’s potential for promotion:

Per the 2021 AFP Compensation Survey

The primary criterion for upward mobility is increased job responsibility (cited by 88 percent of respondents). Other factors impacting career advancement include:

  • Contribution to department or company profitability (cited by 59 percent of respondents)
  • Earning an MBA or other advanced degree (17 percent)
  • Earning a professional certification such as AFP’s Certified Treasury Professional® (CTP) or Certified Cash Manager (CCM) (12 percent)
  • Earning a CPA license (11 percent)

The survey data show that Vice Presidents of Finance who hold a CTP earned twenty percent more, on average, in 2020 than did their colleagues without the certification. Other titles that benefit from CTP certification include CFO, Cash Manager, Accounting Manager, Senior Treasury Analyst, Treasury Analyst and Senior Accountant.

The results of the 2021 AFP Compensation Survey suggest it is worth a financial professional’s investment to earn a professional certification or higher degree, since holding those certifications or degrees tends to lead to higher incomes and upward mobility.
