Help a fresh grad - CFA and CPA/CA/ICAEW/ACCA for TAS

hi guys,

i am an accounting/banking & finance graduate and I graduated in January 2021.

i have interned in the audit space (risk assurance and audit) and I find myself quite interested in transaction services, specifically deals and M&A but am finding it difficult to break into TAS.

how beneficial are the CFA and CPA/CA/ACCA/ICAEW qualifications if i would like to break into the valuation & modelling and financial due diligence department of TAS? for the valuation and modelling, would you recommend the CFI/WSO financial modelling courses as well?

thanks a lot guys
