If you want to work in finance field then along with acca you should opt for CFA and if you want to work in Risk managemt/consulting field then i guess FRM is a better option for you.

Late reply... anyway I am doing CFA after ACCA. Level 1 attempted in June 2019... waiting for results.

CFA Much easier than FRM.
For FRM you need CALCULUS and STATISTICS plus other stuff which we never studied in ACCA.

In CFA you need only statistics (simple standard deviation to probability distributions to Multiple regression) plus other stuff.

CFA and FRM overlap about 20% to 30%.

By the Way they both are very different than ACCA. A totally different field when you first start to study it, with the passage of time they might start to overlap. Different Concepts in Same Context.

because all 3 of them ACCA, CFA, FRM are small branches of BIG Tree which is Economics.
