AuthorTopic: Is CFA really worth for a corporate financial analyst?
@2017-07-11 09:19:40
hi all,

I am a corporate financial analyst in a financial services firm. My job requires me to do business valuation reports, feasibility studies, financial modelling/forecasting and banking memorandums. In future, as the company grows it will also include M&A and writing IPO's prospectus.

I'd like to have the opinion whether having CFA is relevant to my current job. and will my experience fulfill the criteria of work experience required for CFA?

I want to remain in the same type of job or at the most move into credit rating agencies or commercial banking. I am not that interested getting deep into asset management or IB.

CFA is very broad and it would be beneficial for any type of financing position. The LOS includes stats, ethics, fin statement analysis, corp finance, asset valuation, fixed income analysis, portfolio mangement, derivatives and alternative investments.

for a better list of the topic weights on each level go to the cfa institute website.
hope that helps.
