The CFA charter & job security

I think this will be an interesting perspective from people working in finance

Group 1) For people working in finance and studying.  Does a part of you feel you’re doing the CFA program as a way to stay above others not in the program, and to help stave off being laid off (if it gets to that)

Group 2) For those working in finance and have the charter.  Do you feel that it helps at all helping stave off being laid off? Or is it pure performance / office-politics that anyone cares about?

Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and greatest weakness.

office politics play an important role in your career…

if u are charter holder plus u have convincing skills you rocked in otherwise u are great at your own work  but not in ur career
