I am CA.I would like to pursue career in Mergers & Acquisitions.
Please guide me whether CFA degree can help me in getting into M& A jobs
Waiting for opinions
I have my doubts on whether CFA will be an appropirate degree to get into Transaction Advisory. CFA is more related to Portfolio management, alternative investments.. Though there is no pre-requisite degree to get into Transaction advisory, a MBA degree would be more suitable to get such profiles.
Again, TAS (particularly for a CA) can be divided into 3..Lead Advisory , Transaction tax and due diligence services. Again u shud look at wat profile u are looking for. If ur keen on the latter 2 u dont need any other degree and only CA shud be enuff, and if ur looking for LA then an MBA is the best option.
