Essentially, I agree.

Until recent announcements, it was easy to say that the GI track was unlikely to gain traction in the US due to the credential's lack of sufficiency for SAO purposes.

With that roadblock removed, it becomes a question of market acceptance...which begs the question of whether/how the CAS might react...and that is obviously dependent on how the market changes.

I think I should also clarify that my comments are wrt the US market.

I think the ironic impact of the NAIC acceptance of the FSA-GI credential will be a bigger international uptake of the credential in countries other than the US/Canada.

That might also be an interesting space to watch the impact on the CAS.
I find your lack of faith disturbing

Why should I worry about dying? Itís not going to happen in my lifetime!
