Minister of State Serge Telle held a reception on Thursday, March 16, for employees who have obtained the Monegasque Professional Certification set up by the Monaco Government, on the initiative of the Monegasque Association of Financial Activities (AMAF).
The objective of this mandatory certification system, which came into force in May 2014, is to increase the level of competence of the employees of banks and Monegasque management companies as well as to enhance the reputation of excellence of the Principality.
This professional certification is intended for all Front Office employees, that is to say, those who are in direct contact with customers or markets and their direct managers.
Since its inception, 225 professionals have been certified. In his speech, Serge Telle stressed that “the excellence of the Monaco financial centre is a priority. This excellence is directed to several areas: on the one hand, supervision, regulation and organisation of the financial professions, guaranteeing know-how and legitimacy, and on the other, regular and targeted promotion of Monaco as a financial centre, especially at the international level.
