What are the most well respected professional certifications for a career in finance? I have a background in FP&A, cloud/IT finances, mortgage analysis (reverse and forward).

Currently a SA with 4.5 YOE. Thanks everyone. Any personal feedback on what life was like before/after obtaining a certification would be helpful!

I reached out to a BCG partner through cold email. Without chatting with me, the partner connected me with a recruiter. The recruiter offered to chat and answered any questions I have but didn’t ask too much abt my background. At the end of the conversation, she said something like “lmk when you apply and I will keep an eye out for you. “The partner definitely didn’t put a referral in cuz she still doesn’t know me yet. Should I let a friend of mine at BCG refer me then let the recruiter?

I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
