I think it depends where you will sit. Are you thinking asset management as in working for a fund or asset manager or investment manager working with individual clients? I think the former requires more of technical approach, while the latter a more personal. Asset managers have to be able to answer detailed questions from advisors, and advisors have to be able to translate concepts for clients to understand.

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!
