Cfa charter is more highly regarded in Asia and UK than in US

Based on what I hear from friends overseas, CFA seems to be more valuable in Asia like China as some employers in finance put a lot of weight on the charter than the US firms do. I don’t understand why?

Grass always look greener on the other side.
According to the Mercer study conducted on behalf of the institute the Asian markets of China, HK, Singapore, India will witness the highest growth of qualified investment professionals.

The growth rate projected of fresh registration to the program is highest in India followed by China. Alas job market in India does not give any leeway or weightage to the CFA Charter let alone “pursuing one”.

so CFA charterholders don’t have value in India?
