WiseAlpha becomes accredited CPD provider

RELATED TOPICS​

UK-based digital bond market platform WiseAlpha’s new bond academy is now a fully certified Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation provider. Course users will be able to claim CPD points, improve their skills and knowledge and learn about the corporate bond market. 

WiseAlpha’s investment platform makes corporate bonds available to private investors at affordable sizes, via its Fractional Bonds. WiseAlpha is now educating the masses about the corporate bond market with the launch of their free online academy. There are specific and inclusive courses designed for every knowledge level. The course offers three separate units to match the user’s knowledge. Unit one, teaches what are bonds and how they differ from equities. Unit two, teaches what are the different types of bonds and how do they come to the market. And unit three, covers how investors assess the quality of a company and its commercial viability and what industry dynamics should be considered.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a hugely important part of the financial landscape. CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops and e-learning programmes, for individuals to improve their development. 

Many financial professionals are required to carry out 35 hours of CPD per year and the WiseAlpha CPD accredited bond academy is the first of its kind to offer corporate bond investors the opportunity to gain CPD hours. This exciting new approach gives investors an opportunity to expand their knowledge of this asset class. 

The academy will be directed by independent expert instructor, George Flynn from europeanhighyield.online. Flynn has over 15 years of experience in high yield, with previous experience of working with companies such as ECM Asset Management, Pictet and most recently Everest Research. George will pursue to teach members everything he knows about corporate bonds. 

Tim Ganie, Director of Sales & Distribution at WiseAlpha, says: “Continuing Professional Development, CPD, is hugely important in today’s fast-changing financial landscape, whether you are a finance professional or beginning your journey into the world of finance. We have created our CPD accredited online bond academy, in collaboration with independent experts. The course has already been taken by financial advisers who want to further their knowledge of this asset class. Bonds are fast becoming a core part of an investor’s portfolio and WiseAlpha is a leader in this asset class.”
