what is the CySEC Basic 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 Basic certification offers professionals working in the investment services industry in Cyprus the opportunity to learn national and European regulation. The syllabus is composed of 8 chapters and the CySEC Basic exam tests candidates on various Cypriot and European legislation including key legislation such as the well known Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT), Law 87/2017 (the main law for Cyprus Investment Firms - CIF), and how to identify Insider Dealing and Market Manipulation.
Successful CySEC Basic exam candidates become Certified Persons in the CySEC Public Register and are qualified to work at a variety of CySEC regulated entities including CIF and Alternative Investment Funds (AIF), and are qualified to offer investment services such as the reception, transmission, and execution of client orders.
Candidates self-studying for the CySEC Basic exam are able to benefit from a self-paced learning experience without sacrificing crucial contact time with the course instructor. By self-studying, a candidate takes control of their learning journey, relieving the time pressure associated with scheduled live-online courses. By having a stress-free and unrestricted learning environment, candidates can solely focus on understanding the material at their own time and pace.
