Should Offshore lawyer study CFA level 1?

  1. Grateful for advice on the best way to get a grounding in finance, quite quickly. I am a commercial/insurance litigation lawyer with 6 years' experience at one of the leading London firms, but I will shortly be moving to Cayman to practice commercial but also FINANCIAL litigation e.g. acting for hedge fund manager, investors etc. Is the level 1 CFA the best way to go about this, or should I just read business/finance books?

    If you were in the unfortunate situation of having to instruct a litigation lawyer, would you see this qualification as useful?

    Thanks for any advice.
