Continuing Professional Development CPD
MiFID II came into force in 2018 and requires many investment professionals to be knowledgeable and competent - by holding a qualification; having proper experience; verifying that they undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and that firms record all this for their Competent Authority. The drive to deepen EMU and complete Financial Union suggests that ESMA will become the single supervisor of capital markets and will enforce a single rulebook in this field within a few years. Our website structure maps easily onto the ESMA requirements within our field of expertise.
When reflecting upon such a brief `scan of the horizon' each week, the alert professional should notice anything particularly relevant to their own daily business and use the links to drill down into the more detailed article on the subject. The surrounding material in our knowledge centre should enable that professional to research the new development and initiate any appropriate follow-up action such as attending a course on that specific subject. The weekly "read" is a simple yet effective way of allocating a total of one business day per year to spotting some directly relevant news, rather than attending a seminar for a day which may well be on entirely different subjects thus missing the vital clue.
Our CPD services are approved by the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment (CISI) and the monthly "Brussels for Brunch" webcast is initially broadcast live by CISI to its members. It is available on-line afterwards to our clients.
We offer products for structured and unstructured CPD and we are delighted to be able to offer access for individuals via our `Friends' services as well as via a corporate subscription that enables a firm to meet its record-keeping obligations.
Our monthly webcast broadcast by CISI provides 30 minutes of structured CPD per month
Our weekly newsletter provides a suggested 4 hours of unstructured CPD per year
