Opting b/w FRM/CFA/ACCA - asif.ashiqali - 03-12-2010 08:28 PM

Dear,

I am working as a Credit Analyst is one of the banks. Going forward I have plans to move towards Academia or Financial Research. What is preferable for me at this stage among the three qualifications i.e. FRM/CFA/ACCA?

How much component of ACCA deals with Finance/ Accounting / Tax?
Are not there lots of poeple pursuing the ACCA qualification - hence limiting the scope?

Reponse is awaited.

Regards,
Asif

CFA will be better for you, as you want to be a financial analyst
All of the ACCA deals with finance, accounting and tax
There are many students in ACCA, but not many go on to qualify and become a member

Is FRM even recognized? I read a while back that there were some issues with its recognition.
