Hello folks. Hope to get your advice.
Should I divulge to my B4 partner or mentor that I am planning to pursue a CFA? I am not even sure if the CFA program enrollment and exam fees are reimbursable.
I have been with a B4 in just less than a month. I used to work for a regional firm where I received my CPA but I left the work force to relocate overseas with my (former) husband.
I feel that my intentions to be a CFA will raise eyebrows. Aside from being new and have yet to demonstrate my work performance, my practice area is unrelated to CFA work experience requirements. I am cofident I will be ale to balance work demands and preparation for the CFA exam just like I did for my CPA.
Instead of leaving the work force again to get an MBA, I feel that a CFA will be the most cost effective approach to demonstrate knowledge in the financial markets. It should also provide an advantage in the event I want to explore other career options in the future. Perhaps I can also transer services within my B4 so I can gain work experience for my CFA.
