It’s marginally beneficial if you want to work at a fund of funds shop, but that’s about it. Go for the CFA.

No caia is seen as complementary. I believe having the cfa grants you caia level 1 automatically...if youre trying to get onto an investment team at a fund shop then cfa > caia without question

Hi everyone

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!

Looking for advice on types of roles I should be searching in financial services.

I can play the part short term, but have bristled on longer term engagements with human potatoes. 8YOE, Series, & CAIA
