Your stats will give you a good shot for your target schools.

Although you may be a bit on the older range for HBS and by graduation you will be 30 which again is a little old for post MBA associate positions at investment banks. That shouldnt discourage you though, just a word of warning!

I think the key for your app will be identifying what exactly you want to do post-MBA and crafting a coherent story around that. M&A, S&T, advisory are all very different roles and you need to identify one for your essays. Which sector do you want to cover for M&A? Or what product do you want to trade? Then you will have to show how this is a progression from FX risk management and how a MBA will help you.

The CFA lvl 3 shows you are serious about a career in finance (well more so in research/advisory than S&T) which is good!

You havent mentioned your ECs which will also help your app to the top 10 schools u mentioned.
