Our association is proud to support the educational programme for beginners in financial markets launched by the Luxembourg Financial Market Association (LFMA).
The goal of the programme is to provide basic expertise in the structure and functionality of money market and treasury fields and their products. This includes the underlying mathematics and the economics of respective financial products.
A deep understanding of markets is paramount for anyone working in financial services. It is key to understand the impact that unforeseen events (like the current pandemic) can have on economies and global markets. When circumstances stray from the norm, it can be difficult to select the correct course of action, and a strong foundation of financial knowledge can help manage risk.
The Financial Markets Certification (FMC) is a great example of educational resources that can be used to enhance financial literacy. The FMC is a course dedicated to junior finance professionals that can be completed online or in a one week intensive training (26-30 October).
The program will close with an exam, to be held either on 7 December 2020 or 8 February 2021. This certification can be considered a sort of ‘driving license’ for working in financial markets.
LFMA decided to offer a programme with flexible time frames according to candidates personal choice. All candidates can opt for a self-paced online Cyber School provided by Finance Trainer and/or a one-week preparatory course conducted by Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, one of the top-ranked business schools in Germany, on behalf of LFMA in Luxembourg.
