Monaco has been willing to set the highest standards in order to continue to develop its financial industry in a responsible, sustainable manner and to meet clients’ high expectations. Such professional requirements affirm Monaco’s position as a dynamic financial centre. AMAF, Monaco’s Finance Association, certification is Monaco’s official professional certification required for finance professionals…
This certification is mandatory for all new staff seeking front office positions, including traders, financial analysts, client relationship managers, sales people and direct supervisors of such professionals.
Professional certifications are now required in most developed financial centres as they address the specific need for financial institutions to insure that all Front office staff have appropriate technical and deontological knowledge to properly function.
The AMAF certification delivered by the International University of Monaco and its partner IntellEval Monaco includes 44 hours of training. The certification curriculum, developed jointly with the Monegasque regulator, covers many areas of finance: fundamental investment principles, portfolio management, derivatives, financial markets, ethical conduct as well as Monaco’s regulatory framework and institutions.
