Bank of Singapore has partnered with the Wealth Management Institute and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore to launch a new training and development programme
Bank of Singapore has partnered with the Wealth Management Institute (WMI) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore to launch a new training and development programme - advanced diploma in private banking - for its private bankers. This marks the first time that NTU is collaborating with a financial institution to award an advanced diploma in the field of private banking. This programme will be accredited by the Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore (IBF) as an IBF Standards level 2 to 3 programme in private banking - the highest level of accreditation by IBF.
With this new advanced diploma programme, Bank of Singapore will rank among the few private banks based in the city state to offer its bankers a holistic suite of training programmes that all meet the full spectrum of the IBF Standards (level 1 to 3).
The launch of this new advanced diploma programme is in line with Bank of Singapore's focus on investing in its people as it expands its business amidst the changing landscape. The programme is designed to equip Bank of Singapore private bankers not only with in-depth knowledge but hands-on experience across the various aspects of wealth management such as investment advisory, risk management and relationship building.
Bank of Singapore's private bankers will receive tutelage from an established panel of lecturers specially convened by WMI and NTU, who are largely senior practitioners renowned for their knowledge and experience in the financial industry.
They include Dr Aaron Low, CFA, the first Singaporean to be elected as the chair of the CFA Institute Board of Governors, and associate professor Low Buen Sin, associate dean of Nanyang Executive Education and the associate professor of finance at NTU's Nanyang Business School - winner of numerous teaching and research awards.
