Supporting international financial markets

Supporting international financial markets

At LSEG Academy we’re passionately convinced that training and education are key to any economy’s successful development. We understand their intrinsic value – and their power as marketing tools when it comes to attracting investors and companies to a marketplace.

So, to promote growth in both emerging and mature markets, we offer two main strands of support for international exchanges:

  1. We develop and deliver face-to-face training and/or ‘e-learning’ programmes for both internal staff and market participants – brokers, potential and existing users and institutional investors. To ensure the effectiveness of these programmes in transferring and sharing knowledge, they are always tailored to the trainees’ backgrounds, existing knowledge and level of seniority.
  2. Working closely with LSEG’s international staff, we can set up a partnership delivering comprehensive, long-term training to an entire financial community. The advisory programme underpinning this partnership will include:
  • A detailed training needs analysis based on in-depth interviews with the target market
  • Customisation of the first year training programmes
  • Advice on marketing the courses
  • Training for local staff in how to develop their own programmes autonomously
  • The creation of virtual communities that build skills locally by engaging the wider international client base.

Ultimately, the objective of each long-term partnership is to support investment in that particular market and develop the skills that accelerate its financial growth.

Our Graduate Scheme for employees of international exchanges

Academy runs a four-week graduate programme designed for stock exchanges around the world. Its aim is to provide their graduates with a comprehensive, ‘big picture’ overview of today’s capital markets and financial services industry.

In particular, the programme gives graduates:

  • The knowledge and skills they need to start making effective contributions quickly
  • A unique and highly respected international benchmark that enables them to support the long-term development of their market
  • A competitive career advantage compared with their peers

It’s not only about professional development, however. The graduate programme also promotes personal growth and ‘soft skills’ – factors that are critical to success and feature strongly in Academy’s distinctive approach.
