      Hi @vincent, welcome to the 300H community.

      First of, what area of finance are you interested in? It sounds like starting off at a share brokerage is a good start, but the term finance is so broad, you need to narrow down what you’d like to explore career wise, before we all can chip in with our thoughts, especially on suitability of CFA for your goals.

      Hi @vincent, I would say the CFA will definitely help you become a portfolio manager (among other things). My sense is that the sooner you get through it, the better it is. Life will always have obstacles so putting the exams off isn’t a great strategy. Trust me on that one 😉 Not to mention that you’ll need a lot relevant work experience for a PM role.
      Hope that helps!
