Has anyone gone CAIA route ?
New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
Just got a scholarship to take the CAIA L1 in March 2021. Anyone taken it and can offer advice on how to prepare?
Thoughts on CAIA? Difficulty, hours studied, study tips, overall experiences, etc.? I’ll be sitting for Level 1 in September. Currently work in the fund of funds space - moving over to my firm’s hedge fund research team soon so CAIA seemed like a perfect way to get knowledge in the area beforehand. I’m almost one year out of undergrad (econ background) so a lot of the CAIA content is new to me
Is CFA and CAIA certifications helpful for a career in Real Estate Private Equity/Development?
Hi 🐠, question on CFA / CAIA- are either worth pursuing if you want to “up” your professional bonafides? I don’t come from a background in finance, but work primarily w/ PEGs like so many of us.
Waiting on CFA L3 results and salary “revisit” in Sept. Have CAIA designation already and base salary of $64k base salary +20% bonus currently as credit analyst. Should I be looking for big raise?
Is the CAIA a worthwhile designation to pursue? Firm is willing to sponsor, but not sure how much PE firms care about it

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Shameless company plug, sorry y’all. But Morgan Stanley just rolled the FRM Experienced Professionals Program. This program is designed to recruit and develop diverse professionals regardless of whether they have a background in Finance or Risk Management. If you’re interested just dm me. I made it out of kpmg and hopped over to MS and honestly so far I’m loving it. Also more black people in this space would really go a long way.
