I've recently joined a MM PE firm (thanks WSO for your help!). As I'm coming from management consultancy, I've been offered the opportunity to study for either the CFA or PT MIF (or something else if I can argue for it) to help bring me up to speed to the technicals I missed out on having not done 3 years of IB.
Selfishly I'd like to make sure that what ever I choose is going to give the best opportunity at a bigger fund in a couple of years' time, as well as provide a solid knowledge base for whilst I'm here. My initial thoughts are that the CFA is more 'technical', and not 100% relevant to PE - whereas the MIF could be more commerical and, if I choose a decent school, might provide the 'leg up'.
Would appreciate your thoughts.
