Does LIFA have recognition?

  1. Does anybody recommend the LIFA designation (Licensed International Financial Analyst) instead of CFA.
    LIFA is offered by International Research Association in MA - They have the same curriculum as the CFA program.
    I am in an IT profession with an MBA looking to get into a Finance/IT combination career. I have passed the CFA level I, but since I heard of the LIFA exam format I am inclined to take this, since you don't have to retake the entire level if you fail any particular subject, just the areas where you fail. I want to know, does this have industry recognition. Would it help me to get in. Any recommendations? Thx
