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!

CAIA is not as popular as the CFA globally, not just in Asia as the CFA is a tougher exam.

Suggest doing the CFA and then CAIA.

Recently moved to industry (corporate strategy). I am good at strategy type work but long term I think I’d like to do something that is a little bit less ambiguous and a bit more grounded in day to day running the business and tangible decisions. I particularly like doing analysis (financial, etc) and tying that to tangible recommendations. What’s a good place to consider going next (in a large company)… FP&A? Into more of a GM role?
