CFA is a clearly more valuable credential. It's also much more work and money

Depends on why you want to do

If you are interested in risk management or risk and regulatory advisory, FRM would be preferable

Get both and both are useless. I have both btw.

Yep. FRM is more relevant. But FRM material is way less organized compared to CFA. And ppl know simply everyone passes FRM easily

Get both ✌️

Can CFA get someone into banking?

^lol... I don't understand why CFA is so popular. There are very few jobs requiring CFA. Big four are doing a lot of Risk stuff so I thought FRM might be more useful.

Pwc2, I have both too and agree on use but no regrets. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey

@EY2 well, I have to admit that it feels damn good to have those three-characters behind my name

Pwc2, you mean 6.

Lol, true, 6

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
