The designation, a post-graduate level specialist qualification, is being launched in Cyprus in partnership with the European Institute of Management and Finance (EIMF), with the first five-day training course starting 21 March.
The qualification will be taught at the EIMF headquarters in Nicosia, with highly experienced trainers from EIMF’s partner, the FSTP.
It has three units: Financial Markets, Portfolio Construction Theory and Applied Wealth Management, each assessed by passing three-hour, written exams.
The EIMF five-day study programme offers practical exam-type questions, additional supporting material and optional mock exams which are marked instantly.
Successful candidates are recognised as experienced and qualified financial sector professionals and are permitted to hold the exclusive CISI Chartered Wealth Manager designation and access full membership of the CISI.
Marios Siathas, general manager EIMF, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this world class, post-graduate level CISI qualification here in the Cypriot market, which is suitable for wealth managers, IFAs, private client managers, discretionary portfolio managers and private bankers.
“This highly regarded qualification has been developed in consultation with leading professional practitioners.
“The Chartered Wealth Manager exams are held just twice a year and therefore it is important that candidates have the best opportunity to pass first time.”
Kevin Moore, Chartered FCSI, CISI director of global business development, said: “We look forward to welcoming successful Cypriot candidates to our elite and growing global community of practitioners in this important private wealth management market.”
