Austin, TX, United States, 2011/09/14 - FirmElement.com has launched new online courses covering required training for financial professionals, and critical knowledge on compliance, ethics and senior management accountability within the new regulatory environment in the financial industry.
Many of the new online courses are connected with new federal and state regulations, codes of behavior for financial professionals, ethical standards at the institutional level, transparency to the public, and investor protection. “The new financial landscape, particularly in the Unites States, is one that’s extremely vigilant in terms of protecting public interest,” explains Alex Sayyah, 360training.com VP of E-Commerce and Marketing.
The new online financial training curriculum includes: the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act; Anti-Money Laundering for Financial Professionals; Ethics for Financial Professionals; Outside Business Activities; Gifts, Gratuities and Regulations; Variables Annuities – Advanced; Institutional Ethics; Code of Ethics for the Investment Advisory Firm; Ethics in Institutional Sales; FINRA and Back Office Functions; Understanding the Rules of FINRA; Compliance Issues for Investment Bankers; Red Flag for Seniors; Fiduciary Responsibility and Retirement Planning; Communication with the Public – Supervisor; Communication with the Public for the Registered Rep; Advertising; Customer Information Protection; Protecting Senior Investors; and Social Media in a Business Environment.
The new FirmElement.com courses address the many changes that have occurred recently. Since 2006, the financial industry has been under scrutiny to identify the vulnerabilities which led to the series of economic downheavals in this recent half-decade. This has led to the production of a new body of regulations and knowledge that converges around the prevention of abuses within the industry and the protection of the public. FirmElement.com’s online courses begin to address these new regulations in detail.
“This new FirmElement.com portfolio represents this new pool of best practices and is designed to distribute this knowledge among industry professionals in the fastest, most convenient manner” says Alex. Using the robust online learning platform and network of 360training.com, FirmElement.com is able to provide self-paced training on-the-fly, anywhere.
