Course description

Overview

This two-day course is intended to give a comprehensive overview of the accounting for regulated managed funds and their financial instruments. It will cover the statutory reporting of collective investment schemes as well as the pricing and valuation of securities held in these funds. Existing knowledge of basic accounting and double entry bookkeeping is not necessary as this will be covered in the course.

Who is this for?

This course will benefit those from investment and commercial banking areas, fund management, as well as those who support these constituencies. It will use a recently published set of accounts, and a case study exercise that will task the delegates to create their own set of accounts.
