The Wealth Management Institute (WMI) is proud to announce the launch of the Advanced Diploma in Private Banking. WMI plays the lead role in the design and delivery of this Advanced Diploma Programme which, in partnership with NTU, has been customised to the needs of Bank of Singapore (BOS) with the singular aim of developing a world-class cohort of senior private bankers for the Bank’s rapidly-growing private banking business.
The Advanced Diploma in Private Banking will be awarded by NTU and will be accredited by the Institute of Banking and Finance (IBF) as an IBF Standards Level 2/3 Programme in Wealth Management - Private Banking. This is the highest level of accreditation for this industry specialisation under the IBF Standards.
The programme will focus on enhancing Bank of Singapore’s wealth managers' skills to enable them to operate confidently in the rapidly evolving regulatory environment, secure lasting and trusted relationship with clients, deepen expertise in wealth planning, investment and portfolio management, as well as supporting clients in risk management and control. It will be both academically grounded and practice oriented, covering a comprehensive curriculum with case studies. To achieve this, WMI will draw on our expertise in wealth management education for industry professionals as well as our strong network of faculty, consisting of local and global thought leaders and distinguished industry practice leaders.
