what is the CySEC Advanced certification examination and why prepare self-study?
The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) is the responsible authority for overseeing and supervising all investment services offered in and from Cyprus. CySEC’s main priorities are to ensure investor protection and the smooth operation of the market. Therefore, professionals operating within the investment services industry, must have the required knowledge to execute their duties and responsibilities with competence.
The CySEC Advanced exam is the most in-demand certification in investment services in Cyprus and has been established to confirm a candidate’s knowledge of CySEC’s regulatory framework. The CySEC Advanced exam syllabus (last revised in 2021) covers key Cypriot and European Union (EU) legislation and has 14 chapters. Further, some of the most prominent regulatory frameworks are Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II, Insider Dealing and Market Manipulation Regulation, and the Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) law.
Candidates who successfully pass the CySEC Advanced exam are qualified to provide a range of investment services such as investment advice, portfolio management, dealing on own account, and reception, transmission, and execution of orders. In turn, this increases their chances of securing a position or being promoted within:
- Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF)
- Alternative Investment Funds (AIF)
- Crypto-Asset Services Providers (CASP)
