We are pleased to announce the launch of The Asia Financial Markets Foundation Certificate (AFMFC) in conjunction with ASIFMA.
The AFMFC aims to provide the essential foundational knowledge required to become a successful professional in Asian financial markets.
With input from financial services L&D leaders across APAC, Alpha and ASIFMA have designed an introductory-level course providing a broad financial markets certificate with a pan-Asian focus.
The flexible self-paced learning is low on cognitive load and means no time-off-desk required. All content has been created since 2021 and up-to-date for the post-Covid world.
Mike Chadwick, Executive Director – Head of Education & Training, Asia Securities Industry & Financial Markets Association said,
“The purpose of the AFMFC is to provide an introductory overview of Asian financial markets to a wide range of participants, from career entrants to more seasoned professionals moving into finance or relocating to Asia. This wide population requires a flexible approach, while maintaining the integrity of learning and assessment. We were pleased to choose Alpha as our partners, for their creative approach to these challenges, and to help bring our certificate to their tier 1 client base across Asia.”
