It’s completed online, through media such as expert-led video sessions and eLearning content.

This comprehensive course will bridge the gap in your knowledge and make your CV stand out with employers. It will give you an outstanding platform for a successful and exhilarating career in financial services. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate accredited as equivalent to a level 4 diploma in finance (currently pending with Chartered Banker Institute - to be backdated once awarded).

The Foundation Course is comprised of 52 hours of specialist content across five modules and will provide you with:

· An in-depth understanding of Capital Markets;
· Enhanced theoretical and practical knowledge and skills; and
· Eligibility to complete the LBA’s Practitioner Course.

The course features five modules covering a wide range of topics from advanced finance and banking to sustainable finance. Upon successful completion of the Foundation Course, you will have:

  1. Gained strong knowledge of Capital Markets, banking infrastructure, and operations - from immersing yourself in the 2008 financial crash to understanding how it impacted global banking and trade.
  2. A deep understanding of finance – including: commodities, trade securities, and commercial lending. You will learn about newer and less conventional banking methods such as shadow banking and cryptocurrencies, as well as discovering advanced finance concepts, including the criminal side of banking (i.e., anti-money laundering, fraud, and terrorist financing).
  3. Learnt how investment banking is monitored to protect investors and banks. You’ll have developed a strong understanding of the risks of not treating compliance properly.
  4. Looked at how major world events such as Covid impacted world markets and how Capital Markets navigated them. On top of this, you’ll have examined how future events could impact financial services and how, in a constantly evolving world, political uncertainty and economic fluctuations can provide deep risks and opportunities in the finance industry.
  5. Grasped the critical nature of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in the finance sector - and how they show the public firms care about the way they act.
  6. An understanding of how financial markets keep up with changing ESG regulations and how important compliance is.

These modules will be delivered by industry-leading experts, including David Long, Photis Lysandrou, Gary McClure, Dom Amura, Humphrey Percy, and David Mills.
