NISM signs MoU with Kerala’s Saintgits Institute for investor awareness programmes
Kerala-based Saintgits Institute of Management and the National Institute of Securities Markets, the educational institute established by SEBI, have signed an MoU to offer joint programmes, workshops, investor awareness programmes and other capacity building initiatives in securities/capital markets.
The MoU was signed by M. Thenmozhi, Director of NISM, and Roji George, Dean of Saintgits Institute of Management.
The objective of the partnering is to jointly design and deliver specialised programmes with particular emphasis on securities market and wealth management areas. The programmes will be offered to address the growing need among students and working professionals to have an understanding of the financial markets. Further, joint initiative also focuses on offering management development programmes and faculty development programmes along with financial literacy and investor awareness programmes.
The practitioner-oriented joint certification programmes will enable our students to stand out from the crowd and secure the best jobs in the finance industry, in sectors such as investment banking, asset management and consultancy, said Thomas T. John, Director, Saintgits Group of Professional Institutions.
The participants in the programme will also be trained on the Bloomberg Terminals which will be an added advantage. Saintgits is establishing a Bloomberg-powered Finance Lab, which when functional will be the second such instance of this scale in South India. The Finance Lab will offer students a global perspective and Saintgits is striving to incorporate the use of Bloomberg Professional Services in a maximum of their MBA courses.
