Though I'd like to be a part of that, I just can't see myself getting prepared enough in the next 2 years. I'm getting older and with starting a family soon...

    Any CFA holders?

    I was wondering if anyone here has a CFA and how it's helped your career. I'm looking to take the test and what not, but I want to see if it's worth it. I think that this would be a good way to round me out. Any help would be appreciated.

    Starting in the Quant Career

    The reason I'm considering getting a QMM is a starting point to get into finance. My field of study in undergrad was biology. (Sweet right?) After getting into Physical Therapy school, just realized that it wasn't for me. Didn't go and started in a career in IT. I do some programming, but...
