ACI Diploma and ACI Diploma New Version
The ACI Diploma and the ACI Diploma New Version build on the ACI Dealing Certificate and the ACI Operations Certificate, both being designed to ensure that candidates acquire a superior theoretical and practical knowledge of the foreign exchange and money markets, their related instruments, environment and applications, and the linkages that exist between those markets and the practice of risk management. Candidates are expected to have acquired a solid grounding in the core subject areas and have the requisite skills in financial mathematics prior to matriculating for these Diplomas.
The course of study for both Diplomas is designed for:
- Senior foreign exchange and money market dealers;
- Corporate and bank treasurers;
- Senior operations staff.
Whilst recommended, there is no obligation for candidates to have passed either the ACI Dealing Certificate or ACI Operations Certificate in order to be eligible to register for the examinations of both Diplomas.
