I think ACCA is known as CPA in US

Someone correct me if I’m wrong but is being a CA carry much more weight than a CPA is in the US? I heard the CA exam is much harder.

I’m a US based CFA charter holder and honestly never heard of the ACCA

OP what is your goal? Do you want to be an accountant or controller or do you want to manage money and or understand finance (CFA)?

I work in transaction services and deal tech

What’s your goal? I can talk about the CFA, just finished and got my charger 2 weeks ago. CFA is a long, arduous process. It’s really not worth it unless you have a specific field you want to break into like private wealth management, portfolio management, fixed income, or equity research.
