ACI – The Financial markets Association

Global wholesale financial markets are dynamic and fast changing and these conditions demand highly qualified people with wide-ranging market skills and knowledge. ACI's Education Programme provides globally acknowledged, portable, professional qualifications that enhance career prospects, improve job performance and set benchmarks within the industry. ACI communicates regularly with a wide range of national Regulators on the education and training of market participants. ACI also works closely with regulatory bodies in a number of countries to ensure that market standards, ACI examinations and regulatory requirements all find common ground.

ACI provides a suite of specialised examinations targeting Foreign Exchange, Fixed Income, Money Markets, Derivatives, Repos, Asset & Liability management, Risk management and Conduct for front, middle and back-office staff. The ACI Dealing Certificate offers candidates both technical and practical dealing experience in financial markets elements as well as ethical behaviour principles expected from someone working within a front office role with the ACI operation Certificate offering procedural and operational topics and behavioural principles expected from someone working within the Middle and back Office environments. All ACI exams are in English and electronically delivered.

ACI is an exam body and exam preparation opportunities are delivered by third parties such as training companies, business schools and authors. On 1st April 2019, ACI launched its Trainer Accreditation Policy and Multimedia TradeWind Limited is proud to be thus classified. See for the full list.
