CFA exam registered name vs passport name - how different is different enough to not be accepted?

Right - so if I've registered for the exams under Francis Joseph Underwood, but my passport says Francis Underwood Joseph, is that OK? Last name is Underwood, but due to weird passport conventions my last name ended up in the middle. This sometimes confuses authorities in airports so I'm wondering whether it'll cause issues during the exam.


  • I have a friend that completed all three exams with a similar name difference, so no problems for her there.

    If you want to 100% confirm you can always email CFA Institute to check for your specific name.

    Personally I think it's amazing that you're taking the time from running the country to focus on the CFA, Mr President - really shows how important the CFA is to personal self improvement!
