I'm a sell-side sales trader and I'm considering going for the CFA to increase my knowledge in the financial field. I was just wondering, do you guys think my experience will meet the requirement for the CFA designation after I pass the 3 exams? I am part of the investment process so I should be ok, but I was just looking for other opinions. Thanks.

yes, but you dont need the knowledge for your job. If its easy for you go for it. If it will take over your life its probably not worth the effort.

as a former trader and level II candidate I can tell you the CFA has absolutely nothing to do with trading. Won't help you at all. But it will take 3 years off your life expectancy.

dadick,
you are right u dont need cfa to trade. but the cfa does one thing for you regardless of what field you are in, - IT GETS YOU RESPECT FROM OTHER PEOPLE- b/c chances are unless they have taken it as well you are overall smarter than the next person.
