FAQ

 

1. Why SFCCA certificates and not others?

  1. Written from a practical hands-on perspective by a known FCC expert trained at prime banks in Singapore

  2. More focussed in content (including business e.g. PB&S) without unnecessary theoretical discussions, retaining depth where needed

  3. Course originally developed as a shorter 4+1hour 2019 course under Euromoney Learning (no longer offered) accredited under IBF-STS scheme

  4. Developed originally for Hong Kong and later converted to a Singapore course i.e., strong on both centres

  5. Content is focussed on risks, regulations and best practices relevant for Singapore & Hong Kong i.e., regional content and context.

  6. FATF Recommendations apply. Skills are exportable across centres in Asia, Middle East and Africa (US, UK & Australia have specific regimes).
