The House of Training
During the year of its 25th anniversary, the IFBL has again recorded a substantial increase in the number of registrations: expressed in “training man-days”, the figure increased from 10,000 in 2010 to 13,200 in 2014, and reached 15,000 in 2015. As in the past, courses connected with the investment fund industry have been very well attended, as have all the training courses directly or indirectly linked to the regulatory and supervisory environment of the financial marketplace. Even more than in the past, the IFBL has also received many requests to organise in-house training courses tailored to the clients’ specific requirements.
However, 2015 was not only the year of the IFBL’s 25th anniversary: it was also a milestone in its history, as it was the year in which the Institute joined the House of Training. This new player in the market for continuous professional training, created on the initiative of the ABBL and the Chamber of Commerce, is keen to become the Luxembourg economy’s privileged partner for continuous professional training. To achieve this objective, the House of Training brings together under one roof a very wide range of training courses for different sectors of activity and training fields. The financial community will have the benefit of a substantially extended training offer, more expertise, and improved management processes, while dealing with a single partner. In fact, all the partnerships previously concluded by the IFBL with the most important professional associations in the financial sector will be renewed under the House of Training banner, thereby ensuring that the training offer remains up-to-date, relevant, and targeted to meet the needs of the financial sector.
