A careful study of the loopholes of the previous course content of ‘Chartered Finance & Technical Analysts’ emerged as a result of the initial weak industrial experience of the expert, who developed the approved curriculum and the syllabus. It is was further noted its tenet of course delivery was slightly below the anticipated standard, due to the current advancement of the Investment industry and the complexity of capital transactions at the global market level, which is fueled by technological progression. This has resulted in a revision of the old version of the curriculum and the syllabus to meet the unique challenge of the capital trading market conditions of developing and underdeveloped economy. This equally helps to screen out the current version from the plagiarized materials used by its potential competitors from the published work of the Institute in the past 2years, as it working document towards a final draft, as a standard version.  

The purpose underpinning the structured content of the course study is to address the challenges facing the capital market of developing economies, which is technically observed not to be lack of market analysts or traders but rather professionals unable to analyze the securities market accurately to the benefit of their clients as investment economists, even though there is a progressive improvement in this field of professional practice, honestly, a lot of advanced skill is required in the landscape of Africa due to its current poorly developed financial market architecture characterized by uncertainty, which makes it difficult for a reliable scientific forecast of the securities market to evaluate the risk level as well as assuring for quality investment return and decisions to the satisfactory benefit of their investors.

The program recognizes and takes into cognizant the various instruments of trade in the securities market like forex, commodity, stock, and bond in both theoretical and experiential study. However, all these products of the security market, which use to be traded manually and restricted to a geographical area of trading, have all advanced in technology about two-to-three decades ago, leading to the creation of a global market of no boundaries or borders through virtual trading platforms as the most competitive trading ground of the global capital market. As a result traders with a high level of technical know-how and capital market experience are able to exploit the business opportunities relating to the global exchange market, regardless of location and country of residence.

The course content is to equip students on the practical approach or result-oriented application of finance-econometric methods of forecasting relevant for both formulated Trading (On-the-counter/Electronic transaction) and Unformulated Trading (Over-the-counter transaction) of the capital market, which focuses on forex, commodity, stocks and bond trading as a sub-discipline of behaviourial finance unique to developing economic environment. The program is driven in a mechanism to develop modern expertise for the benefit of public Investment Institutions, Fund management firms, Corporate funding organizations limited to micro-financing, Rural Banks, Universal Banks, Risk management & evaluations agencies and Insurance firms with the belief that the domestic promotion of the technological approach to the capital market will soon create strong liquidity as a foundation for easy access to capital by entrepreneurs at a low cost for domestic venture Investment.

The course delivers a combination of experiential & technological methods, business-related modules, and capital market analytics, which are designed from a careful examined accredited materials and performance memos of some of the experienced professionals from the global investment giant companies, affording students the opportunity to supplement the basic theoretical studies with a hands-on experiment on relevant international standard software applications.

The course-study further strengthens another line of Investment professionals as an emerging trend in developing economies, which is Venture capitalists, Angel investors, Acceleration investors, and Bankable & Risk analyzed documentation development for capital raising to both profit and non-profitable agencies, a skill very unique in addressing the industrial capital frustration of developing and underdeveloped economies of Africa.
