A new qualification which enhances conduct and ethics among practitioners in the financial services industry has been launched by The London Institute of Banking & Finance.
The Professionalism, Conduct & Ethics qualification covers the FCA’s new conduct rules and examines the differences between ethics, morals and values in the context of the 21st century global finance industry. It seeks to build upon practitioners’ personal experiences and encourages the adoption of these concepts into their day-to-day roles.
Developed in association with the wider industry, the Professionalism, Conduct & Ethics qualification provides the foundation for professionals to build and enhance their careers and offers a pathway for Chartered status.
Martin Day, Managing Director of Corporate & Professional Qualifications at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, said:
“The issue of ethics and how these affect decision-making has long been a source of contention for the banking and finance sector and, while solutions to improving conduct have been wide and varied, we believe offering a qualification which explicitly tackles these challenging concepts is an important step, particularly for those joining the industry. As such our Professionalism, Conduct & Ethics qualification sits at the heart of our suite of professional qualifications meaning that, regardless of their specialist area, banking and finance professionals will be able to understand and apply these core principles to their roles and throughout their careers.”
