Certifications that can help you land jobs: FRM & ERP

The Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) offers two certifications that are rigorous and valued by employers. The Financial Risk Managers (FRM) exam prepares you for market based analysis of financial risk. Consider a Quant training. The ERP (Energy Risk Professional) certification concerns itself with the risks associated with the energy market; a forward thinking skill given the looming shift from fossil fuel based electricity to other forms.

Quantitative analysis can provide extremely lucrative careers for ASD folk provided you are not directly dealing with the trading desk or deal makers.

Some of the books associated with these exams are:

Value at Risk, 3rd Ed.: The New Benchmark for Managing Financial Risk

Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives

Fixed Income Mathematics, 4E: Analytical & Statistical Techniques

And then there is the reading list for the ERP
