Clients can also apply for membership of the Career Advisory Service. We allocate to each client a personal trainer for twelve months:
 
 
Our trainers have all spent many years working in demanding roles in financial services. All of them are involved in the markets so their knowledge is current and they have a role in determining the future.

Values

CAS demands the highest professional ethical standards in our partners and trainers. We expect these standards to permeate to our clients.
 
Our values:
 
 
Trading
 
home-1The health of the world economy is linked to trade.
 
We are dedicated to providing a clear understanding of how different financial trades and transactions work and how to measure the risk and reward.
 
Typically our tutors, as well as providing education, are active in the markets and most are also providing strategic consultancy.
 
We have a range of courses to help our clients get a profound understanding of front office activities. At one end of the range is a general explanation of how financial markets really work, while at the other, there are very specific technical courses. (eg. exotic options and how best to trade them). These courses are complemented by our career acceleration packages which give you access to traders for one-on-one discussions about best practice in the topics of your choice.  
 
 
 
 

Risk

home-2All economic activity carries risk. 
 
We are dedicated to delivering knowledge about understanding risk, categorising it, placing a value on it and mitigating it.
 
Our tutors assist our clients to understand the risks to their organisation, its employees, customers, assets and interests of stakeholders.
 
  • Market Risk

We offer risk management masterclasses as well as basic operational risk training for those working in banks.
 
 
 

Operations

home-3All trades and transactions have to be managed through their life cycle.
 
We are dedicated to providing a wide knowledge of mid- and back-office tasks and help eliminate those departmental ‘silos.’
 
Members of our team are engaged by firms to help with their operations process optimisation and their specialist accounting needs.
 
Our courses cover what we consider to be very important areas that are only partially covered by in-house courses. We offer accounting risk reporting masterclasses and operational risk masterclasses led by some of the top practitioners in practice today.
 

Our legal team is led by an active barrister and we offer masterclasses for lawyers from overseas working in the London markets. Our English law classes designed coach executives to enable them to apply successfully for very senior roles in firms, are highly regarded.

 

Transformation

We are dedicated to improving the understanding of the markets to give our students confidence to lead the changes at all firms need on a daily basis.
 
Improving and adapting a department within a firm requires strong analytical and leadership skills. We have a range of courses to develop the art of leadership and the science of analysis.
 
Members of the career advisory service also have access on a one on one basis with practitioners who are currently leading change in our industry.
