Hi.

Which of the two exams would you recommend for structuring: FRM or CFA? (I am currently completing my MBA, and have an engineering background).

Thank you in advance for your thoughts!

and what they don't need risk management professionals at HFs?

CFA for equities - i hear is the gold standard.

I created a multifactor RMBS model (prepayment, default, loss severity, etc..) and I'm studying for the FRM, looking at the curriculum for this years FRM it covers more about structuring and up to date issues for debt instruments.
