The goal is to strengthen the financial services profession in the UAE.
Education and recruitment
The CISI will assist the Academy in formalising study pathways that will help develop the ADGM knowledge hub for the UAE.
The organisations “share a mutual interest in establishing educational programmes that meet the ever-growing skill requirements of the profession, both locally and globally”, said Matthew Cowan, regional director at the CISI Middle East.
The partnership will specifically look to provide international qualifications to UAE professionals in investment, wealth, risk management, capital markets and Islamic finance.
It will also reinforce human resource management in the financial field to provide a sustainable flow of a highly-skilled and productive workforce.
“As a member of the Abu Dhabi economy, ADGM Academy is committed to the development and growth of the financial services sector in Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE,” added Hamed Sayah Al Mazrouei, Managing Director at ADGM Academy.
“We have been actively engaging the Mena community to develop purposeful and bespoke training and education programmes that address their dynamic needs.
“We recognise the urgency to nurture and prepare a sustainable pool of highly-skilled and productive human capital that can contribute towards the Emirate’s Economic Vision, and augment Abu Dhabi’s position as an international financial and investment centre,” Al Mazrouei added.
