Fund programme 
started at UCCI

The University College of the Cayman Islands has launched its Diploma in Fund Administration programme, following accreditation as the primary training provider for the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.

“Caymanians and others working in the wealth management area now have an excellent opportunity to study while working,” said UCCI President Roy Bodden.

“The partnership between UCCI and CISI allows those interested to benefit from excellent faculty, access to instructors and the convenience of personalised attention. UCCI, in offering this programme, is doing its part to ensure that the Cayman Islands remain on the cutting edge in international finance,” Mr. Bodden added.

The 13-month programme consists of four certificates designed to provide knowledge and skills relevant to understanding the industry and serves as preparation to sit the CISI external examinations.

The certificates are taught by UCCI instructors and industry guests. Topics are presented on Friday afternoons and Saturdays to accommodate students’ work schedules.

The first certificate, Introduction to Securities and Investment (International), is a qualification designed to meet the needs of new entrants in the investment industry.

“The programme provides an overview of all areas of investment, with an approach that is focused and tailored to international markets,” said Carolyn Mathews, director of Graduate Studies and Executive Training at UCCI.

The Certificate in Investment Management is offered in June; Risk in Financial Services is offered in October; and the Certificate in Wealth Management is offered in February 2012. All certificates can be done as individual qualifications or collectively to form a UCCI diploma.
