You are right, the securities licenses won't hurt, but unnecessary if you will not deal with the public in any way. What do you do now, and how will the CFA help you?
I thought I wanted the CFA a few years back when I got a wild hair and thought I wanted to work for a mutual fund company as a hotshot securities analyst or manager.
Luckily, I got it out of my system and dropped the idea, as apparently I am the opposite of you and ludo21. I hate the corporate scene, and just love being paid exactly for my production, not to mention the freedom of coming and going when I want.
Anyway, as long as you love your work, it doesn't matter if you are salary or commission.
