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

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.

So I applied to MS on both software dev role and manager role because I have done a lot of development before and I have done management as well. I am curious how I can explain the reason and also show that one is not second fiddle so to speak to the other when asked by an interviewer who asks me that question? I would prefer manager but I do want to get my foot in the door as well and grow into that role if software dev is the route to go. Not sure if being honest about that is good?
