CFA vs CAIA vs FRM for Project Finance / Infrastructure career path?

Rank: Gorilla | banana points 670

Currently weighing up the alternatives and have a bit of spare time on my hands. Background: already have a M.Fin and a Chartered Accountant certification, current role is in credit risk / transaction execution for a global IB, in particular doing cross-border secured lending to mining companies in emerging markets, but I'm wanting to make the jump into Energy and Infrastructure investments and in particular financing greenfield projects, either on the sell or buy-side. Which would be the best designation to aim for?

Those self study programs are a waste of your time. You already have all the education and experience you need. If you also have basic modelling and documentation skills then ask for a 6 month secondment.
