The CISI says it has seen a significant increase in members at leading financial organisations.

The CISI has expanded its collaborative efforts in the region to include the Jordan Securities Commission (JSC) and Kuwait’s Capital Market Authorities (CMA).

Matthew Cowan, Chartered MCSI, regional director Middle East at the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment said: “Across the region, we are seeing not only a change in attitude, but an increased demand for qualifications.

“Workers in the financial services space are keen to position themselves as the best in their field and the profession continues to demand the highest standards of knowledge, skills and behaviour.”
