Go for CFAA Big thanks to the BT team i have completed FRM Part 2 exam in Nov 2015. I am in the banking sector in India, working as a credit analyst (large corporate credit), which includes risk analysis too.
now that FRM is over I was thinking about completing another certification. With respect to my profile, please advice is CFA would be relevant after completing FRM since CFA is more of a generic course as compared to FRM. Or should i consider other certifications like ERP etc.
Hi @Tarun Kaushal You mentioned ERP and I just wanted to chime in that I posted the webinar slides to our FB page at http://trtl.bz/1JME7i4 (I also noted that I have been surprised, candidly, at the low market penetration of the ERP). I agree with @ShaktiRathore and @brian.field about the CFA. About the CFA, I would just add: I've been a CFA for over 12 years and it truly is the gold standard, in substance and reputation. Just last night, at the gym, somebody asked me about my CFA (in casual conversation) and they were impressed that I had one. It's one of the best investments I've ever made in myself because pretty much anybody in finance is aware of the CFA and respects it. Of course, I mentioned the FRM, but as sometimes or often the case, I had to introduce/explain the FRM: many people who work in finance have either never heard of it (in my experience) or have a superficial awareness. I think it's improving but the CFA has a decades long head start, the FRM is actually doing quite well in growth by comparison but still doesn't have nearly the level of general awareness. Thanks,
Hi Brian just wondering: did you go for it? Can you please share your experience?CFA is most recognized financial certification on the globe. Even if you are not looking to work in financial analysis, it is valuable! I will pursue it after passing Part II of the FRM. Good luck - I say go for it!
