FUNDAMENTALS OF FINANCE
Our Capital Markets Training Programme introduces trainees to the instruments, practices, conventions and valuation methodologies in the Capital Markets and the principles of market risk, credit risk and operational risk. The material covered ensures that consultants can speak the language of front, middle and back office with ease and insight so that requirement and business objectives can be fully and quickly understood.
Unique in our approach is that our Training Program combines computational and theoretical knowledge with real world applications as well as stringent online testing. Our consultants become familiar with highly diverse concepts which complement their broader understanding of Financial Markets.
FD encourages employees to continue to build on their professional skillsets as the Capital Markets environment is ever changing. As such, FD provides its employees with the opportunity to gain external accreditations, recognized on a global scale to compliment the Capital Markets Training Programme.
An increase in market wide risk management appetite post-2008 has created a need for risk aware financiers. Fd trains graduates to be risk-conscious through externally accredited examinations and has thus adopted PRMIA accreditation as a graduation requirement for our training programme.
