The course does not assume any prior study or work experience other than a basic knowledge of mathematics.
For those without a financial markets background, the course book will allow candidates to acquire that knowledge directly.
The training course is intended to provide ‘breadth of knowledge’ to make it relevant to people pursuing careers in the middle office and operations areas.
Although not a formal pre-requisite, it would provide useful background study for those taking any other FMT courses.
The course places an even emphasis on introducing and explaining the key concepts and then developing practical knowledge and skills of each subject area.
