General discussion


I am working in Big 4 in US taxation and i am interested in to pursue CFA, so will CFA be useful in future career growth as right now i am in US taxation? Please help.

In my opinion, it wouldn’t be worth the effort. I assume you have taken/looked into CIMA etc?

But i joined recently the Big 4, so can i pursue CFA then?

CFA would be more relevant, IMO, to a role in an investment firm (such as an investment bank, investment consultancy, asset manager etc). I’m not sure how much use it would be at an audit firm.

Did you give CPA exams?

No i didnt gave CPA, but what are the prospects for CFA in future?

For this, I guess CPA is more relevant.

If you have already registered for L1, give it a try however try to have CPA a priority as you may complete it in a much shorter time as well as it may be relevant to your current job then switch to CFA Program.
