The Financial Services Institute of Australasia (FINSIA) has launched a new suite of interconnected professional qualifications focused on risk management and cybercrime in conjunction with the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investments (CISI).
Global financial compliance, risk in financial services, managing cyber security and combatting financial crime professional qualifications would be available online.
They had been reviewed by a group of senior practitioners led by FINSIA to ensure they would be appropriate for the Australian industry.
Chris Whitehead, FINSIA chief executive officer, said the introduction of these qualifications were the latest example of two years work between the CISI and FINSIA.
“We have also partnered with Fitch Learning, part of the Fitch Group to assist candidates in studying and exam preparation,” Whitehead said.
“The aim is to upskill those in the investment space with a focus on risk management to minimise financial crime.”
