So here's the thing about CFA, the program covers a broad range of topics relating to investment management, financial analysis, quantitative analysis, equities, fixed income and derivatives, and provides a generalist knowledge of other areas of finance.

Depending on what you want your career path to lead to you might not need a CFA. You can consider a CFP instead if you're looking to move towards an in-depth look of Personal Finance.

You should also check out the requirements to register for a CFA program: https://www.cfainstitute.org/programs/cfa/r...nt-requirements
