Is CA better than CFA? or Not?
CA and CFA aren’t the 2 aspects of the identical coin. CA belong to the Accounting quarter even as CFA to the Finance region.
CA will be best for someone who is looking forward to making a career in :
- Taxation and the like.
While CFA will be best for someone wanting to get into:
- Investment Banks
- Equity Research
- Hedge Funds
- Private Equity and the like.
CA , in all it scope, is confined inside Indian terriority as of now. no longer much opportunities are to be hadoutside India, if in any respect.
CFA on the other hand , is accepted across the world and even more so in the Land of Bulls and Bears: Wall Street, USA.
Having said that, CFA by myself with a graduate degree will no longer fetch you roles in funding Banks or Hedge finances or personal fairness. For stepping into these , one could need an MBA from IIM-A/B/C , FMS for the frontcease roles. And, CFA + IIM/A/B/C can get you direct entry into the wall street.
