Does it pay, as an FCAS, to get a CFA? It's something that some employers consider a nice credential to have to get the position, but it has not been my experience that there is a large premium put on casualty actuaries with the CFA designation.

Here are some open casualty actuary jobs that mention CFA, for example. The CFA might help you stand out versus another Fellow, but it's not something for which they're going to pay another 10 grand/year, generally. --

Northeast - ACAS/FCAS - Position 14929 - Firm seeks a casualty actuary to fill their investment actuarial role. Some travel. Reports to SVP. Consulting experience or CFA a plus. Investment strategy, financial analysis and research position.

Northeast - Position 14332 - Client seeks a VP-level consultant. Risk management consulting experience preferred. CFA designation a plus. SAS or C++ knowledge preferred. Some understanding of derivatives pricing desired.

West - Position 14934 - Client is looking for a credentialed actuary or an experienced student with 6 to 12 years of experience. MBA or CFA a plus. Requires managerial experience. Profitability analysis and pricing opportunity.
