Global competition, rapid changes in technology, the creation of web-based funds and new fund structures and the escalating debate on whether to outsource fund administration or keep it in-house, are creating a stronger expectation on the investment services industry for a wider level of professionalism and a more highly skilled workforce. Due to high demand within the industry, IFF has specifically researched and developed this highly interactive training course designed to describe the most important administrative procedures of domestic and off-shore funds.
The two-day course begins with a strategic briefing, highlighting not only the operational implications of IFRS 9, but also its impact on strategic planning, business model design, risk management policies and practice, and external financial reporting. This is followed, over the rest of the two days, by in-depth analysis of each of the three principal sections of IFRS 9.
To keep you ahead of the latest market developments, IFF has created this practical course, which will explore the techniques to review, manage and account successfully for operational risk. Hands-on and case-study-based, this course will provide delegates with a whole set of tools to design efficient internal control mechanisms that help to prevent mismatching of trades and tracking errors. It will also illustrate how to apply data integration methods to centralise and clarify management information systems.
This course is packed with group discussions and practical workshops on the relationships with the counterparties and on explaining the high level process flow from trade to settlement for equities, bonds and derivatives. Delegates will also produce a take-home detailed overview of the clearing and settlement environment including key players, processes and issues.
