I wanted to get your thoughts/feedback on studying for the CFA. Previously, I've spent quite some time on the asset management and capital markets side where a CFA mattered. I have studied the level 2, but I've yet to pass it. More recently, I'd made a lateral into commercial real estate where the CFA is less likely to impact my career. Should I continue the CFA designation or spend the time doing something else? My main goals for the CFA is to allow room for flexibility and if I want to jump back into asset management one day. Another is to hopefully improve salary growth. What're your thoughts? Thanks.
