Providing Structured Products education to Advisors through AI Insight's online interface is a great way for Broker Dealers to take the necessary steps towards meeting FINRA directives.
Worthington, Ohio (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
AI Insight, the Alternative Investment industry’s most trusted source for prospectus-based product training, has added Structured Products education to its online platform. The four-part Structured Products training course consists of Structured Certificates of Deposits, Principal Protected Structured Notes, Principal at Risk Structured Notes, and Structured Products Payout Structures Issuance Type. Each segment has been filed with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., and merits one continuing education credit (CE) upon completion.
Similar to Alternative Investments, Structured Products are subject to special scrutiny and specific guidance from FINRA. Since 2007, AI Insight has been at the forefront in developing standards and best practices that assist subscribing Broker Dealers with complex Advisor training and compliance reporting requirements. AI Insight’s new Structured Products education series has been designed to answer the training needs of Independent Broker Dealers looking to add these relatively new, non-traditional products to their stable of product options.
“Structured Products training is a logical extension to our Alternative Investment education initiatives,” said Sherri Cooke, AI Insight’s founder and chief executive officer. “We’re seeing an increased number of our Broker Dealers looking to offer Structured Products to their retail clients – and therefore expressing a need to ensure proper education as they vet out these types of programs. Providing Structured Products education to their Advisors through our online interface is a great way for them to take the necessary steps towards meeting FINRA directives in this area.”
In addition to generic Structured Products education modules for CE credits, AI Insight will be expanding its online database to provide full-service, issuer-based education modules in 2013. AI Insight’s expanded Structured Products service line will help subscribing Broker Dealers comply with FINRA Notices To Members 12-03, 05-59, and 03-71.
