Progressive Learning Journey

When it comes to designing a learning and development curriculum, we apply the 70:20:10 rule. Essentially, 70% of learning is experiential on-the-job, 20% learnt from peers, and 10% from formal learning events. Our training events are designed to accelerate and amplify the skills required for your role and longer-term career development.  
As an example, we will help you work toward any relevant professional qualification aligned to your role and your chosen programme. These include: 

  • IOC: Investment Operations Certificate
  • IMC: Investment Management Certificate
  • CFA: Chartered Financial Analyst Level 1. CFA Levels 2 and 3 are programme specific

We also roll out technical and behavioural skills-based training at regular intervals throughout the course of your programme. Some topics include: Knowing your Strengths, Cognitive Agility, Resilience, Personal Impact and Authenticity and Communication.
