New entrants to the labour market often enquire at Moonstone Business School of Excellence (MBSE) how to go about entering the Financial Services Industry with the aim of building a career.
Gone are the days that you could start a career as a representative, receive on-the-job training and make progress through gaining experience. The Industry has become more regulated over the years and the requirements that have to be met to provide financial services are a lot more demanding.
Obtaining a recognised qualification, as one of these requirements, can be a stumbling block to many due to time and cost restraints.
At MBSE we took cognisance of the many challenges newcomers and existing representatives are facing in becoming Fit and Proper. During the planning phase of our new qualification, we not only took these challenges into account but also ensured that the qualification is aligned with Professional Bodies’ requirements for a longer-term career path in the Financial Services Industry.
The Moonstone Group is well-established in the market, and with this new Qualification, MBSE is able to further contribute to professionalising the Financial Services Industry.
Our Higher Certificate in Wealth Management, a 120 Credit Qualification at NQF 5, is offered online and is available for Part-time or Full-Time students. It is recognised by the Financial Services Conduct Authority for fit and proper requirements for all product sub-categories of Category I FSPs. It also provides an ideal entry point for new entrants into the financial services industry to kickstart a career in financial planning while working under supervision.
Registration closes on 9 July 2019 with starting date 15 July 2019.
