    Hi all!

    Would really appreciate your advise!

    Currently I'm 22 and working for Legal and General investment management as a Pricing analyst..... Fancy title for monkeys work!

    I have the drive and ambition to go forward but silly me didn't stick with education and as such I have no degree. Will have completed my IMC before summer is over but not sure that's going to be enough to make the move to front office (trading, central dealing, FMA/FM).

    My question is do I do a degree OR do I go for the CFA?

    I have 2 years experience in the role and I'm thinking I might just bit that bit too old to go back to school so I'm in a bit of a pickle!

    Let me know your thoughts!!
