About Marc A. LeFebvre

Marc A. LeFebvre, CFA began teaching CFA® review courses to the European private banks in 1995. For 27 years of helping candidates achieve their goal of earning the CFA designation, he started LevelUp, LLC. With over two decades teaching CFA Program curriculum, Marc learned there are no shortcuts to passing the Level III CFA exam. As years of experience accrued, he saw candidates struggle with the complexity of the Level III exam and saw the need for a different approach to preparing the Level III candidate for success.

At the same time Marc was teaching CFA review courses around the globe, he spent 15 years in the investment profession working in investment banking, strategic development, pension administration and private wealth management. Marc has been a CFA charterholder since 1994, he earned his Master of Science in Finance from Boston College Carroll School of Management and his Bachelor of Art in Economics, cum laude from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Marc was also a professor of practice of both resident and online undergraduate and graduate finance courses at a midwest university.

When Marc isn’t helping Level III CFA candidates past the exam he is an avid cyclist…competing in gravel, mountain and road races.
