Is CMA worth getting after getting the CPA? Or is it better to get the CFA. Also don’t have much finance background so I don’t know if I can pass the CFA will require a lot of hard work. Interesting in hearing people’s thoughts. I have no plans in leaving PA anytime soon but I figure maybe I should look into another certification that holds value and makes me more marketable compared to my peers. Appreciate any thoughts and advice. - Also considering going to a t14 MBA in future.

Is there really any benefit to a 529 account? Investments are limited, the only tax benefit is state taxes, and your access is limited to qualified expenses. Why shouldn’t I just invest that money in a CMA account for my kids, have it actively managed and let it grown with them. Yes I’ll pay taxes on dividends and withdrawals, but seems like the savings are marginal, and potentially cancelled out when you factor in performance. Im feeling a bit of buyers remorse.
