SP, SGX Academy to launch programme for stockbrokers and dealers

SINGAPORE: Stockbrokers and dealers will have an opportunity to enhance their skills in a training programme to be offered by Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and Singapore Exchange’s (SGX) own school SGX Academy.

The programme aims to train 100 professionals and individuals a year.

Individuals are those who are keen on a career in the share market or want to improve their knowledge.

This will add to the pool of over 4,000 stockbrokers and dealers who are licensed as trading representatives in Singapore.

SP and SGX will launch the programme in April this year and expects to have 60 participants in the first year with intakes in January and July.

The programme will cover products such as shares, exchange traded funds, bonds and structured warrants.

Topics include features of the stock—broking industry and regulatory framework, dealing ethics and trading offences, fundamental analysis and stock evaluation, technical analysis and customer service skills.

Participants in the programme can earn continuous education points which they can use to help meet licensing requirements to become a Singapore trading representative.

SP and SGX said the programme will be marketed in the ASEAN region.
