SimCorp A/S has entered into an agreement with Trader Trainer ApS to establish SimCorp Financial Training A/S. The new company will offer financial competence building to financial institutions and corporates based on a broad range of traditional courses, practical training and Internet-based distance-learning. SimCorp Financial Training A/S will provide services built on the combination of SimCorp’s established financial course- and conference business and Trader Trainer ApS’s software system TraderMetrics – a market simulation program which includes an Internet based version – with the possibility of interactive training of realtime trading and analysis of the financial markets. SimCorp Financial Training A/S will thus create an educational platform which combines traditional knowledge-transfer with realtime training, aimed at experienced as well as inexperienced market participants. The company plans to develop other Internet-based competence building products in the near future.
