Global Involvement

Since its formation in 1992 Lywood David International Group incorporating Lywood David International Limited and its sister company Multimedia TradeWind Limted’s products and services have been used by over five hundred financial institutions world-wide. Until 2016 the Group companies presented open training events and fulfilled bespoke consultancy commissions for individuals and client institutions across the five continents. Alongside London based open courses the company presented many training events throughout Europe and the Middle East and in the emerging markets of the Caribbean, Africa and the Far East.

Over the years many local ACI / Financial market Associations in international centres have used the company’s services with training courses towards ACI qualifications having been held in Basel (BIS), London (over 20 for client institutions and 2 open courses per annum), Jersey (2), Katowice (Poland - 4), Poznan (Poland), Rovinj (Croatia), Bratislava (2), Bucharest (2), Cyprus, Dublin (2), Luxembourg (3), Moscow, Paris, Prague, Stockholm, Doha (2), Dubai (3), Accra (3), Lusaka, Riyadh (2), Tel Aviv (2), Tunis (4), Casablanca (3), Tripoli (2), Kuwait (4), Abu Dhabi (7) and Jeddah.

Participants on the company’s training programmes have always found the experience invaluable in their preparations for ACI qualifications and many excellent results have been achieved over the years.

Lywood David International Limited’s open courses in London and overseas financial centres and in-house training on behalf of client institutions world-wide ceased in 2016 and the company has now ceased trading but the reputation for top quality training materials continues through Multimedia TradeWind Limited with WinFOREX distance learning software and published financial textbooks. For clients’ ease of contact the well-known longstanding website access address of Lywood David International Limited has been retained alongside the address: https://www.multimediatradewind.co.uk.

Interactive training software products

Since the mid-1990s Multimedia TradeWind Limted in association with Nick Bygrave of Tradewind Design has led the way in the design and marketing of a range of  training software products for general Treasury training (WINDEAL for Spot FX and WINDEAL for Money market dealing simulation software).

Interactive self-study software products

WinFOREX interactive PC based distance learning software for candidates for ACI - The Financial markets Association industry standard qualifications has been developed over this period and updated each time ACI has revised their syllabuses and examination formats. Multimedia TradeWind Limited now offers WinFOREX software for the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version (April 2020), ACI Dealing Certificate (Sept 2017), ACI Operations Certificate (Sept 2017), ACI FX Global Code Certificate (July 2019) and ACI Diploma (suitable for both the Sept 2017 and New Version syllabus training).

With the publication of the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version 002-101 syllabus and examination format in April 2020 the software and question and answer databases have been totally revised and updated. WinFOREX products targeted at the September 2017 syllabuses still also remain available.

​Phil Parker

Phil Parker, Managing Director of Multimedia TradeWind Limited has over 50 years personal experience of the financial markets. Phil is an ACI Accredited Trainer. He spent his 25 year banking career with the Lloyds Bank Group in a number of senior Treasury roles. An experienced practitioner, having actively dealt in the foreign exchange and money markets (10 years in LBI London), Phil was appointed the bank's first Exchange examiner fulfilling an audit/consultancy role regularly visiting the bank's international dealing centres. He then held the position of Senior Manager – Systems development for the bank's Treasury Division, responsible for the design, development and implementation of sophisticated mainframe dealing management information and dealing decision support software systems. This appointment was followed by four years setting up a specialist treasury training capability providing training for all levels of bank personnel and corporate customers.

​Phil Parker

Since forming his own training and consultancy company Lywood David International Limited in 1992 Phil regularly presented training on general Treasury issues, Auditing the dealing room and courses targeted specifically at ACI - The Financial Markets Association industry standard qualifications. Up to his retirement from course presentation in 2016 he managed ACI Dealing Certificate, ACI Operations Certificate and ACI Diploma open courses in London and overseas financial centres and in-house training on behalf of client institutions world-wide. Phil now concentrates on marketing and selling the company’s PC based WinFOREX distance learning software and financial textbooks.

Financial Textbooks

Phil is the author of several textbooks targeted at the ACI qualifications. Mastering the ACI Dealing Certificate was initially published by FT Prentice Hall in 2003 and The ACI Dealing Certificate and How to Pass it was published in 2009 by Riskmatrix. Lulu-published textbooks for the new syllabuses and examination formats introduced initially in 2013 were the Treasury Operations Handbook (revised in 2018) aimed at ACI Operations Certificate candidates and Financial markets and the ACI Dealing Certificate first published in August 2013 and revised in December 2017 for ACI Dealing Certificate candidates.

There then followed published question and answer textbooks for the ACI Dealing Certificate (June 2018) and ACI FX Global Code (July 2019). Now, with the publication of the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version 002-101 syllabus and examination format in April 2020 Phil has totally revised and updated the textbook, now re-titled Global Financial markets and the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version. All published textbooks targeted at the September 2017 syllabuses remain available and once further amendments to syllabuses/examination formats are advised by ACI these too will be revised and updated as necessary.
