CPA valued in investment management?

If you’re a CPA, you know financial statements analysis, so there’s overlap with CFA there, and that skill would be useful to say private equity firms and analysts writing reports in firms.
But I suspect you won’t use most of the skills you acquired as a CPA.
The risk if you work for a fund company is that you get shunted off to back office to do accounting tasks

It is valued when it comes to accounting and certain operations (and valuation) part of the investment.
