Anyone on the distribution side of private funds ? Currently at a liquid alternative 40act fund and working on my CAIA. I was wondering how difficult the jump is to the other side. Any context would be helpful!
Currently have the FRM title.
I failed CFA level 3 once.
I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.
While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.
Any suggestions as to what I should start with?
Is the CAIA content worthwhile? Anyone take it and have any insights to offer on. Is the content provided in the education applicable info to their employment?
Currently in ibanking as an associate and want to see if I can make the move to PE. Is the CAIA viewed favorably at all?
Anyone taking CAIA 1 next mo?
CAIA or CMT?
I do institutional sales for an asset manager. Am graduating in the fall with an MBA from a top 40 school. Would like a designation but dont want to do the CFA. ￼ Between the CAIA and CMT: which one is more applicable to asset management, and better status/recognition?￼￼￼ appreciate any insight￼
CMT vs CAIA?
I currently work in sales for an asset manager and have an MBA. Would like a designation, one that’s applicable to asset management and has some status/recognition. Appreciate any thoughts or insights. (Also dont want to take CFA)￼￼￼
Tip for anyone taking the CAIA exam, get UpperMark. Was using willey and was abt 1/2 complete and borrowed a friends test bank … night and day much harder and honestly was more like what I expected
As a junior strategy consultant who’s keen to work in PE, would a CFA or CAIA be an advantage when applying for an investment role in the future?
Is CAIA worth it? Actually CFA too lol
Hi 🐠, question on CFA / CAIA- are either worth pursuing if you want to “up” your professional bonafides? I don’t come from a background in finance, but work primarily w/ PEGs like so many of us.
CAIA vs CFA?
Thoughts on CAIA? Difficulty, hours studied, study tips, overall experiences, etc.? I’ll be sitting for Level 1 in September. Currently work in the fund of funds space - moving over to my firm’s hedge fund research team soon so CAIA seemed like a perfect way to get knowledge in the area beforehand. I’m almost one year out of undergrad (econ background) so a lot of the CAIA content is new to me

Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s?
