    Can some one help me understand the uses of Investment Management Certificate (IMC) qualification by CISI. As the IMC qualification is also provided by the CFA. I'm confused to choose between IMC by CISI or CFA.

    Thank you.

    Both qualifications are very similar and are seen as mid range qualifications. There is not much difference between the two although the CFA board is more well known and as far as i know there are more online distance learning options available for the CFA boards IMC exam.
    CFA's Boards IMC exam can be seen as a precursor qualification to the CFA exams. It is a qualification that is not as time consuming as you can easily complete both units 1 and 2 exams within a year. It is also not as hard as the CFA but if you are planning on completing the CFA exam sometime in the future it can be highly beneficial
