The significance of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment’s (CISI) global professional development programme in Nigeria has been officially recognised by the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria’s (CIBN) accreditation of CISI as an Educational Service Training Provider (ESTP).
The important accreditation means that CISI’s exemplary Continuing Professional Development (CPD) online learning programme can count towards CIBN members’ annual CPD requirements. The deal also means that CIBN members can study for CISI’s suite of global qualifications in the knowledge that they have CIBN’s endorsement. Some of the qualifications promoted under the partnership with CIBN include:
– International Certificate in Wealth Management (ICWIM)
– Risk in Financial Services
– Global Financial Compliance
With a history dating back to 1963, the CIBN’s vision is to be a global reference point for professionalism and ethics in the banking and finance profession in Nigeria.
With over 45,000 members in 100 countries, CISI’s 40,000 qualifications and exams are recognised by 60 global financial services regulators. The CISI’s global qualifications programme encompasses the professional financial services sectors of wealth management, financial planning and capital markets, offering an accessible study pathway for those looking to get into or develop their careers in the dynamic global financial services profession.
The CISI’s CPD digital platform contains over 180 e-learning modules, or “Professional Refreshers”, 500 videos on the CISI TV channel and 1,300 articles in the exclusive CISI member magazine The Review.
Praneet Shivaprasad, CISI Senior International Manager said: “We are honoured and excited to achieve this important accreditation from the CIBN, which has a critical role in capacity building and the promotion of ethics and professionalism in the Nigerian financial services sector. Our global qualifications and CPD e-learning programme will provide CIBN members with an opportunity to complement their excellent CIBN training and qualifications with our own CPD programme to help ensure their learning is relevant and up to date to meet the needs of our fast-moving, competitive, global capital markets.”
The CISI has been working in Nigeria for over four years and has agreements with a number of prestigious Nigerian institutions, in addition to the CIBN, including the Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers (CIS). Its agreement with the African Securities Exchange Association (ASEAN) has allowed it to develop a close relationship with the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), who’s Chief Executive Oscar Onyema is a CISI member.
