Given a choice of spending time, money and effort on upskilling oneself at age 30, would you see more value in someone going for an MBA / CFA / accounting qual or learning how to code?

Wow- it depends on what you want to do next. I think CFA over MBA if you are interested in asset management. If you want to point toward tech, I would learn to code. Although there is more need to dats analytics in asset management today, a full degree on coding is probably valuable to the largest firms.

tbh - as many issues as this country has (e.g., social, medical, political, health, wealth inequality)...im just hitting 30, bought my mom a house in the SF Bay Area (400k+ mortgage :/ !), and hit $1M+ this year. The key context being that I WAS RAISED IN A TRAILER PARK. There is no competition for the opportunity, fortune, and luck we can be blessed with in the US (despite the terrible times we are in...)
