I passed June 2014 CFA level 1 exams and am very excited!!. I earned lot knowledge in CFA level 1 curriculum. Its the best education in Finance Field, but my experience is in software development and background is in Enginnering, I wanted something where I can use my knowledge and exprience.
Hence I thought I should do CQF which is only 6 months course and complete CFA level 2 and 3 later on. Any thoughts/Guidance on the same?
Would anyone on the west side of LA like to put together a study group for the 2015 CFA?
Anybody have an idea of when Schweser books usually ship? I’m assuming the end of October but can someone confirm this?
I’m young engineer (3 years working experience). About 18 months ago I decided engineering wasn’t for me, (mainly for personality fit and personal interest in the subject area(s)), and that I wanted to pursure my passion for active style asset management.
All be told my current job is pretty good to me, which makes me feel like I should wait for just the right opportunity to come along before jumping ship. At the same time I understand that I will likely need to take a step back professionally to get on my desired career track.
It’s quite an early stage in my career (3 years), I have some experience in Corporate Finance and is currently in the Equity Capital Markets. I’m sorta at a crossroad cause I recently failed my Level 2 exams (partially due to a lack of motivation, if I’m going to stay in ECM, there really isn’t that much value ascribed from a CFA charter)
My question is, if I want to transition into the buy side, does completing my CFA actually help me get a job on the buy side? or is the only route from research>fund management?
After taking level 1 I was thinking of taking the CBV program and looked online to judge how hard it was. I saw debate, I saw contention, I saw people state that the CBV was really hard…
I just passed CFA level 3 and am part way through the CBV program.
I studied about 500 hours on average for every level of the CFA and felt like I barely squeeked by.
I studied about 25 hours for CBV and its a cakewalk.
End of comparison. CFA reigns supreme in difficulty.
