ICSA launches new qualifications for offshore finance professionals

ICSA (Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators) is the chartered membership and qualifying body for professionals working in governance, risk and compliance, including company secretaries.

ICSA has launched four new Level 4 (the equivalent of first year undergraduate) qualifications for offshore finance professionals. The new International Finance and Administration qualifications replace ICSA’s Certificate in Offshore Finance and Administration (COFA) and will offer much greater choice and flexibility than before.

The new qualifications being offered are:

  • ICSA Level 4 Award in International Finance and Administration – this covers the key principles in offshore finance and administration, including products and services available, how the sector is monitored and regulated, as well as how trusts and companies are created and managed. This module meets the regulatory requirements for offshore jurisdictions
  • ICSA Level 4 Subsidiary Certificate in International Finance, Accounting and Administration – this qualification covers the same introduction to the offshore financial environment as the Award, and introduces the fundamentals of accounting – how financial information is created and used
  • ICSA Level 4 Subsidiary Certificate in International Finance, Investment and Administration – this qualification covers the same introduction to the offshore financial environment as the Award, and introduces types of investment products and how they work
  • Level 4 Certificate in International Finance and Administration – this covers the general principles of international finance and administration, plus the fundamentals of accounting and investment. Students successfully completing this qualification can use the post nominal CertICSA
