Posted: 11/06/2024

The innovative compliance training course, ‘Understanding Sustainable Finance’, receives Endorsed CPD accreditation from the CISI.

Equilibrium Futures is excited to announce that its innovative online training course, ‘Understanding Sustainable Finance’, has received CPD accreditation from the prestigious Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI). This endorsement underlines the course’s standing as a leading educational tool designed to elevate financial professionals’ understanding of sustainable finance within International Finance Centres (IFCs) like Jersey.

Endorsed by the CISI – a mark of excellence

The CISI’s membership extends to 80 countries, and its accreditation of ‘Understanding Sustainable Finance’ as providing CISI Endorsed CPD is a testament to the course’s rigour, quality, and relevance, and its association with the highest standards of professional education and CPD within the financial sector.

This globally recognised endorsement also highlights the Jersey-designed course to a wider audience to help shape the future of sustainable finance practices worldwide.

Highlights of ‘Understanding Sustainable Finance’

Developed by Andrew Mitchell, a Jersey-based world authority on natural capital and sustainable finance, the ‘Understanding Sustainable Finance’ e-learning CPD course offers a window on the future that Jersey cannot afford to ignore.

Andrew Mitchell said: “The UN Financial Centres for Sustainability highlighted in its recent assessment of Jersey, a yawning gap in local skills related to sustainable finance. This is especially true in the majority of our Trust Administration sector. Our course offers an opportunity to plug this gap and significantly upskill key personnel. Next Gen and future female asset owners that statistically care more about sustainability issues, will not be waiting around for Jersey to wake up. They’ll go somewhere else.”

The online course features eight interactive, video-led modules that cover a range of topics crucial for financial professionals seeking to acquire the latest in-depth knowledge on the opportunities, risks and future trends in sustainable finance.

It also improves literacy in discussions with clients about sustainable finance and users gain a greater understanding and awareness of compliance needs. Upon completion, users receive a ‘Sustainable Finance Practitioner’ certificate.
