The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) is delighted to announce the signing of an agreement with Compliance and Risk Consultancy Ltd, (CRC) to promote and train for CISI qualifications across Africa.   

The CISI has been growing its footprint in Africa over the last five years and now has projects underway in 12 countries – focusing on providing internationally recognised professional qualifications to support individuals and capacity building initiatives in financial services.  CISI qualifications are a requirement for licensing by the capital markets regulators in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia and are recognised by the African Securities Exchanges Association.

CRC subsidiary Africa division, based in Mauritius, will train for not only the CISI’s Global Financial Compliance qualification, but will also offer training for the foundation level qualifications as well as the Corporate Finance Certificate and Islamic Finance Qualification.

Chief Executive Yousouf Jhugroo said: “This agreement with CISI is an exciting development for CRC, enabling us to focus on developing high professional standards in the Mauritius financial sector and across Africa. There is an identified growing need for compliance training in Africa, and our highly experienced trainers will be able to provide professionals with the key skills needed to advance their careers.”

Kevin Moore, Chartered FCSI and CISI Director of Global Business Development said: “We are very pleased to accredit CRC to offer training for CISI exams as we continue to support the growth of financial markets in Africa, through the provision of internationally recognised qualifications. CRC’s training will offer students the opportunity to enhance their skillsets and progress their careers in an increasingly competitive global market”.
