A first group of 26 students in Sri Lanka have completed the Securities & Investment Institute’s (SII) Islamic Finance Qualification (IFQ).
First Global Knowledge Centre(FGKC) trained the students for the international benchmark qualification in Islamic finance. Part of a network of 40 providers around the world accredited to train for SII qualifications, FGKC is the Institute’s first training partner in Sri Lanka.
FGKC also offers training in Pakistan, Bangladesh, the Maldives and Qatar. It has entered a partnership with Menatsa Training & Development to provide specialist education programmes in Islamic finance, including the IFQ, in the Gulf region.
Arwa Tapia ASI, SII’s head of client relationship for India, travelled to the Sri Lankan capital Colombo to oversee the exam. She said: “There is a huge potential market in Sri Lanka in financial services education. We aim to complement what is already available in terms of qualifications in the domestic market and work with regulatory bodies, the Central Bank and other eminent trade bodies towards the enhancement of competence and skills in the financial services industry.”
