I have recently started my career journey, and was thinking of getting my CFA (I'm 24 so I figure I should do it sooner rather than later). I have a BBA with a specialization in Finance and I took a few CFA related courses in college, I also got my CSC back in 2017 (a financial designation here in Canada). Currently I am working at one of the big 5 banks in Canada as Compliance officer for Real Estate lending and I got the job early 2020 and was thinking that getting my CFA could advance my career as time goes on. I also like the idea of doing something challenging and I have a passion for finance. A few questions before I enroll for the August 2021 seating.
1) What additional course materials have helped you pass CFA Level 1. I've been looking into Mark Meldrum's and Kaplan Schweser's material for additional support and not sure which one to get.
2) How has the CFA helped you in your career?
Thanks in advance!
