IMA Public Courses

We provide two 2-day courses on what makes the industry tick: one covers an understanding of the business of retail fund management companies; the other aims to provide delegates with an understanding of the UK institutional marketplace.

We also have one day courses on Risk Management, Approved PersonsDerivatives and CASS.  All our courses have been developed specifically for the investment management sector and are available to both members and non-members.  Numbers per course are limited.

We will customise our public courses for firms to hold in their offices, which may be more cost effective for larger numbers of staff.     Please contact David Kanolik for more specific information and indicative costs.
