The person carrying the charter is much more indicative of quality.

I would say that the bottom 10% of charterholders are pretty mediocre when it comes to finance, and might have marginally related investment decision jobs, if that’s even possible with the charter requirements.

Similarly, the top 10% in the finance non-CFA world are probably more successful than the top 10% charterholders.

All speculation, let’s not say better. But more or less the same. It might add value to your average employee, but look at the person, not the name.
