Program endorsements

I attended the NYIF Capital Markets Professional Certificate Program for my training and development as a new Capital Markets Examiner within my organization. The course was a positive experience through engaging and knowledgeable instructors, relevant materials with modern case studies, and the opportunity to learn with other like-minded professionals. The program enhanced my understanding of more complex capital markets topics that arise during our examinations, such as duration gaps, use money market instruments, interest rate swaps and derivatives, and fixed income pricing among others. By acquiring and applying these skills, I will be able to advance within my organization’s Capital Markets program and provide value to the financial institutions we oversee.
