I'm in a business development role based in Asia. May I get your thoughts/pointers on the CAIA?
I'm aware that the CAIA is not as popular in Asia compared to the CFA. From my knowledge, there are no CAIA holders in my current firm within the Asian region, despite dealing with alternative investments.
Would be happy to hear your thoughts regarding the CAIA, and study tips if you have any!
Is the CAIA content worthwhile? Anyone take it and have any insights to offer on. Is the content provided in the education applicable info to their employment?
CAIA vs CFA?
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.
Has anyone gone CAIA route ?
Currently have the FRM title.
I failed CFA level 3 once.
I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.
While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.
Any suggestions as to what I should start with?
As a junior strategy consultant who’s keen to work in PE, would a CFA or CAIA be an advantage when applying for an investment role in the future?
Is the CAIA a worthwhile designation to pursue? Firm is willing to sponsor, but not sure how much PE firms care about it
Honest thoughts on best qualifications to go after to break into PE from consulting - should I go after ACA/CFA/CAIA? I feel I’ve only got the patience to do one of these 😂
CMT vs CAIA?
I currently work in sales for an asset manager and have an MBA. Would like a designation, one that’s applicable to asset management and has some status/recognition. Appreciate any thoughts or insights. (Also dont want to take CFA)￼￼￼
What’s your take on including an alphabet soup in your signature? Which of your designations do you intentionally exclude and why? ex PhD, JD, MBA, CPA, CFA, CAIA, PMP, PMI, CIMA, CFP, etc etc
Anyone on the distribution side of private funds ? Currently at a liquid alternative 40act fund and working on my CAIA. I was wondering how difficult the jump is to the other side. Any context would be helpful!
Anyone taking CAIA 1 next mo?
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
At this point all I care about is salary what would result in your opinion most money •CFP •CPA •prestigious MBA •CFA •CAIA •coding boot camp I’m at $85k now
Is CAIA worth it? Actually CFA too lol

What amount of money do you feel okay spending frivolously. I have been watching my expenses for 2-3 years, minimizing all kinds of spending, saving and investing aggressively. But, I have been feeling this urge to fly first class to Vegas and blow through 10k. Obviously, not going to do that, but is it okay to waste 3k for a mental high.
Requesting suggestions for the case study round for Nagarro.Please provide your valuable insights.Thabks in advance

This question is for my brother.
He joined h3xaware as fresher this year and has unknowingly declared medical insurance for parent. As I am already having another medical coverage for them. Is there a way to opt out of the insurance from portal.
It caused a deduction of 2k from his salary and is not required.
Any information on this or process will be really appreciated

Anyone here been scared of heart disease before?
When I was still in big law two years ago, I woke up one night with chest pain and a pounding heart.

Can someone help me understand the vaccine policy? I understand we need it to go into office, etc. and proof of vaccine needs to be provided by January. But if we’re remote, or want to stay remote, do we need to have vaccine? What about the boosters, are they needed if we were vaccinated way earlier this year? Is there a testing option? Not looking for commentary on who should get vaccine, boosters, etc.
