Will CertFMM help a non-Mathematical background?

I currently work as a Bond Data Analyst and am two modules into an SII Diploma, but am tired of data and am highly motivated to find a role within Asset Management as a Fixed Income Analyst. These roles however seem to require a mathematical background. Despite being highly numerate I have an arts background (2.1 in French and Arts A levels BBC). I am hoping this qualification will help me prove that I can cope with higher level Maths. I can find very little opinion on it and its gravitas though. Would anyone have an opinion or perhaps suggest an alternative or how I can try to address this issue?

I would be extremely grateful for any considered opinion.
Many thanks
