    I am currently looking to further my professional qualifications. I currently work in MO for a big US investment bank and I am wanting to take the Securities institute exams in order to achieve FSA recognised status. The grand plan is to do this now as I am going back to uni to do an MSC in sept and want to graduate in a years time with the msc and FSA exam already in the bag, hoping that I can get on the graduate trading program for one of the big IB's. But I am confused in regards to what exam is the best. The securities institute has both the Sii diploma and the Sii certificates. Can someone please explain what the difference is and which is more highly sought after. I am funding this myself and I am not so keen on asking the guys from work because I don't want to many people to know what my plans are.
