This book, written by Phil Parker and published by Multimedia TradeWind Limited via Lulu, is intended as the definitive guide to the examination and the Sept 2017 syllabus. It is also useful for anyone whose financial effectiveness would be enhanced by the many explanations of markets, products, calculations and operation.
The ACI Dealing Certificate is a foundation programme that allows candidates to acquire a working knowledge of the structure and operation of the major financial markets (foreign exchange, money markets and derivatives), including the ability to apply the fundamental mathematics used in these markets and the basic skills required for competent participation. The industry-standard qualification also demands a basic understanding of ALM and risk management principles and internationally accepted best practices required to be followed by market participants. The ACI qualification, therefore this book, is designed for recent entrants and junior dealers (0-18 months experience) in the dealing room, financial institution and corporate treasury personnel, middle office and operations personnel together with bank compliance and risk officers.
Note: ACI have announced that the September 2017 syllabus and examination will continue to be available to candidates for at least 6 months. Please see the ACI website for further details re booking deadlines.
