Compliance officers are challenged to give advice, to review new products and transactions and to monitor business practices in a highly technical environment. They are also expected to have the interpersonal skills to deal with highly incentivised business people and senior management. This product-based course is designed to give Compliance Officers the tools to understand the products and markets and to work with the business to produce solutions. Where solutions are not immediately achievable, your trainer will give advice on diplomatic, yet assertive disagreement, based on decades of dealing with traders, salespeople, analysts, corporate bankers and senior management in often highly-charged environments.
