Isle of Man launch for new ICSA offshore finance qualifications

Isle of Man, 12 February 2015 – ICSA, the Institute for professionals working in governance and compliance, launched their new International Finance and Administration qualifications recently. The event, at Salt Bar & Kitchen in Douglas attracted over 30 guests and included presentations by Kelly Padwick – Qualification Development Manager and Theresa Minnie – Head of Client Relations and Members.

“There was a good deal of interest in the new offering from ICSA. The benefits of the new qualifications, including increased flexibility, fewer and shorter examinations and the option of studying for larger or smaller qualifications as required, all appealed,” says Theresa Minnie.
Adrian Tinkler, ICSA Isle of Man Chairman, added, “It was great to welcome Kelly and Theresa to the Island to introduce the new qualifications which are ideal for our offshore financial services industry at all levels, and fully recognised by the financial regulators in the Isle of Man.”
