The Diploma in Investment Accounting is backed by The Chartered Institute of Bankers Scotland, The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland and Scottish Investment Operations.
Extensive consultation with the investment industry’s largest employers has shaped the qualification that will address a commonly reported skills gap - the absence of qualifications for new and experienced investment and fund accountants. The diploma will help to grow, develop and retain talent in the fund accounting area.
Diploma candidates will gain a solid understanding of the theory and practice of investment accounting in four key areas as highlighted in the syllabus.
This should prove to be an invaluable addition to the courses available to employers and students alike. The opportunity to acquire a highly relevant qualification will further enhance the professionalism of both financial services businesses and their workforce.
