The Award is regarded as a foundation qualification for a range of jobs in investment business within financial institutions authorised and regulated by the FSA. The Introduction to Investment Award contributes to the Securities & Investment Institute’s (SII’s) overall commitment to widening opportunities for people to enter the financial services sector and increase the general understanding of the role of financial services in the UK economy. The Introduction to Investment is the ideal induction qualification for new staff across the industry.
