Should I Pursue FRM with CA? My CA Final Attempt is in November 2016.

FRM would be a wonderful addition to your CA degree. It will give you sound knowledge of financial mathematics and risk analysis, a lot of which could be beyond what you will study in your Strategic Financial Management paper of CA Final.

I, or for that matter, no one can guarantee if it will land you a job in an Investment Banking or any other allied firm in the financial industry. However, there is no reason why your additional hard work in pursuing this course will not be rewarded in the future. The knowledge that the course will give you will be quite a reward in itself, and I believe it should definitely brighten your chances of getting a good work profile in the finance field.

To answer whether you should do it right now, I would suggest that you should wait to complete your CA Final exams first. Had your attempt been in November 2017, I would have asked you to go ahead and do it simultaneously. However, currently, my advice would be that you focus on doing your CA final course well so as to clear it with flying colors in the first attempt.

Wish you the best!
