CFA Society of the UK (“CFA UK”) today announces formal supported training programmes for its Certificate in Climate and Investing (“CCI”) with the UK’s leading training providers and partners BPP, Fitch Learning and Quartic.
The CCI is designed to help the investment management industry understand the implications of climate change on investments and help individuals further their career in this field as capital markets play an increasing role in the transition to a low carbon economy.
Candidates who enrol with our training partners to study the CCI, will gain access to a tailored and extensive range of relevant content, services and guided tuition to help them develop a deeper understanding of the implications of climate change in the investment profession. Candidates will also receive end-to-end support through their whole qualification journey, from enrolment through to sitting the exam.
Christina Curtin, Director of Education at CFA UK commented: “Working with recognised and highly experienced industry training providers such as BPP, Fitch Learning and Quartic provides candidates of the Certificate in Climate & Investing a choice of supported study pathways. At CFA UK we are delighted to be able to offer this route as an addition to the self-study option to ensure that candidates that are choosing to invest in their careers towards achieving net zero investment strategies are given the best possible preparation.”
