This week saw CEO Lee Hodgkinson and Chief Creative Marketing Officer Trefor Thomas open the Singapore Exchange (SGX). The reason for their visit? To celebrate a prestigious collaboration with the SGX and Asia’s first official employer-led accredited trading programme.

Kicking off in 2020 (subject to regulatory approvals) the immersive course will be delivered over 5-weeks full-time in Singapore and repeated throughout the year. Participants will get to experience our signature hands-on experiential deep dive into the global derivatives markets and a world of immersive knowledge provided by ZISHI Cornerstone.

As well as learning all the fundamentals to fast track a trading career, candidates will also develop the knowledge and skills required to successfully enter into the world of investment management.

We’re proud to note that ZISHI’s immersive qualifications and courses are fully accredited and OFQUAL regulated, while receiving recognition at associate level by the UK Charted Institute of Securities and Investments. For all applicants successfully completing ZISHI programmes, roles in trading, financial analysis, portfolio management, risk management and many other finance careers await.

Lee Hodgkinson, CEO, commented:

“AAA-rated Singapore has a vibrant trading community, located in the heart of Asia and is a perfect location for our ZISHI education franchise to deliver its flagship courses. Singapore is also the world’s second-largest private wealth management centre, representing an exciting strategic venue for our future capital raising prospects. We are delighted to be partnering with SGX, which is renowned as one of the world’s most important market operators.”
