Fitch Learning, part of Fitch Group, on Monday 10/6/2019 announced launching its international Credit Academy and certification in Egypt for the first time locally in Partnership with MASAR.
The institution said in a statement that it takes pride in transferring its knowledge and solutions to the Egyptian financial sector to further enhance the advancement of financial professionals.
The launch of the first-time international Academy and certification will be offered locally through providing two credit academies in Egypt starting June 2019 and for eight consecutive weeks full-time, as the two academies are geared towards training credit and risk financial professionals in order to better manage credit portfolios for big companies and SMEs with global excellence.
Egypt is one of the world’s most promising emerging markets, evident through the recent economic development that resulted from the implementation of its economic reform program, and the Egyptian government’s ambitious plans and commitment to foster youth development and career enhancement for Egyptian professionals, the note said.
“We’re excited to launch these Academies to mark the start of Fitch Group’s strong presence in the Egyptian market and Africa,” said Andreas Karaiskos, Chief Executive Officer, Fitch Learning.
“The Egyptian market is offering investors an attractive variety of investment opportunities, and it is important for us that our young professionals not only understand the singularity of operating in this emerging market, but also can address the complexities of operating in a global market and be able to navigate through the complex financial and economic challenges,” said Dalia Khorshid, Chairwoman and CEO of MASAR.
