“As a result of this agreement, a specialized educational platform of investing in financial markets will be launched,” Shaikh Khalifa bin Ebrahim Al-Khalifa, Bahrain Bourse’s CEO, said. “The platform will encompass awareness programs to address the needs of all ages of citizens and will open up doors to cooperate in various areas between BHB and BIBF during the upcoming period.”
Through a partnership, BHB will use BIBF facilities for its stakeholders and provide them with simulation programs. The BIBF will provide support by delivering training programs such as its “Securities Market Regulation Certification” program.
“We see this initiative between the BIBF and BHB a further enhancement to the skill-set required in Capital Markets,” Solveig Nicklos, director of the BIBF, said. “The approach we are taking is a holistic one where we are taking steps to boost required skills from an early stage starting with schools and move upwards to train professionals at the same time.”
