ICA Certificates


With the ever-increasing pressures on financial services centres around the globe to ensure compliance with international standards, it is essential for professionals within the financial services sector to be adequately trained for the effective implementation of regulations in place to ensure that the sector remains transparent and competitive.

The FSA, as the supervisory authority for reporting entities under its regulatory ambit (i.e. non-bank financial services) is therefore cognisant of the need to, at all times, maintain a high level of regulatory compliance and adherence to certain service standards within the field of the non-bank financial services industry.
