The Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) and NOESIS have announced a formal partnership to offer exam preparation courses for treasury and finance professionals based in Singapore and Malaysia. The courses will equip financial professionals with the tools they need to earn the Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) and the Certified Corporate Financial Planning and Analysis Professional (FPAC) certifications.
By partnering together, AFP and NOESIS are providing finance and treasury professionals with a path to become leading innovators in the profession. Consistently beating the global average across all their programmes, NOESIS offers students the opportunity to learn from well-qualified lecturers with years of industry experience.
“This collaboration with NOESIS helps AFP bring a world-class training experience to treasury and finance professionals in Singapore and Malaysia,” said Himashi Soriano, managing director of APAC. “Through high pass rates, an engaging learning environment, and focus on innovation, this path to earning AFP’s prestigious designations will help practitioners in Singapore and Malaysia distinguish themselves among their peers.”
The CTP designation, sponsored by AFP, serves as a benchmark of competency in the finance profession and is recognized as the leading credential in corporate treasury worldwide. The CTP credential signifies that treasury practitioners have demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to effectively execute critical functions related to corporate liquidity, capital and risk management. The FPAC credential, also sponsored by AFP, establishes a set of core competencies for the corporate financial planning and analysis profession and addresses areas that are not necessarily covered by traditional accounting degrees. It is the only credential that is specific to financial planning and analysis; it is forward-looking and assesses the ability to see the big picture.
“The corporate finance profession is undergoing strong growth in the region,” said Dr Yee Wee Chun, CEO of NOESIS. “NOESIS is extremely happy and excited to partner with AFP to offer their programmes. AFP’s quality complemented with NOESIS’ strength in the market will ensure success for both institutions.”
