Nasdaq Dubai to provide Claritas preparation course
Dubai, March 16, 2014
Nasdaq Dubai Academy is set to provide an intensive training course to prepare candidates for the Claritas Investment Certificate examination.
The certificate is a new international education and ethics standard across the financial services sector offered by the CFA Institute.
The two-month ‘Claritas Prep Pro’ course will give candidates a thorough and practical understanding of how the investment industry works and those who complete the certificate will emerge with a clear understanding of the investment industry and their professional responsibilities within it.
The Claritas Investment Certificate is accessible to a wide range of professionals working with investment decision makers in functions such as marketing to client services, from HR to IT, and from compliance to legal.
Conducted in association with Genesis Institute, the course will start in April at Nasdaq Dubai’s offices, with two three-hour evening sessions per week.
Hamed Ali, chief executive of Nasdaq Dubai, said: “Nasdaq Dubai has a mission to promote knowledge and education across the Middle East’s capital markets. The Claritas Investment Certificate provides a broad understanding of practices and principles that will be very valuable to individuals working in the industry and the companies that employ them, as well as supporting the development of the financial services sector.”
The topics to be covered include understanding different asset classes, how to make investment decisions, examining the structure of the capital markets, and risk management and regulation.
Nitin Mehta, CFA, managing director of EMEA operations for CFA Institute, said: “We are delighted to see this innovative partnership between Nasdaq Dubai Academy and Genesis Institute, which will contribute directly to the raising of professional standards of all participants in this industry. Education is at the heart of our mission at CFA Institute and the Claritas Investment Certificate allows us to broaden our reach across many key functions within the financial services sector.” - TradeArabia News Service
