Available as an in-house course. Details on request.



The objective of this course is to show how to value, price and the accounting involved for prices in Collective Investment Schemes starting from the underlying portfolio.



The course is aimed at delegates with little or no knowledge of authorised Collective Investment Schemes.  Delegates need a basic understanding of accounting and equities and fixed income investments and will be capable of entry recognition.


Delegates will expect to leave the course with a good knowledge of collective vehicles, their valuation, pricing, basic accounting and basic taxation.


The course is very practical with numerous examples and two case studies.
