Can anyone tell if the case studies for FA have been changed or they are still BBA and Can-do as summarized in this post? If changed, what would be the best resource to find the updated topics? Thanks!

Someone should make a new forum post/sticky like this one for the new CDEF Final Assessment. I am too busy at the moment, otherwise I would.

Thought I would share some links that helped me along the way:-

Task 2:
http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...d.php?t=330243
http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...d.php?t=339110
https://www.finweb.com/investing/pro...e-at-risk.html
https://www.investopedia.com/ask/ans...volatility.asp

Task 4:
Use the actual returns to see how adding some assets to your portfolio would change the risk/return metrics.
