Training Scheme of the year

of the year
UBS Global Asset Management Fund Services
Rapidly changing financial markets and ever-changing client needs mean that a successful fund administrator can struggle to maintain the appropriate technical understanding of financial market instruments. In order to meet this challenge, UBS Fund Services has launched its own in-house-developed training course: ââ?¬Å?Investment Instruments Fundamentals Refresher 2006ââ?¬Â. The two-day course was offered to over 500 employees in English, German or French. The course was supported by an intranet site which ensured on-going easy access to the information. This also facilitated the self-study that was expected of participants in order to deepen their understanding of topics they were interested in. {playerflv}/images/stories/awards_vids/clip15.flv|320|256|#ffffff|true|left{/playerflv}Fund Services believes that as course participants will better understand the vast range of instruments into which funds invest, they will be better able to respond to clientsââ?¬â?¢ questions and needs, thereby increasing customer satisfaction and adding value to client relationships.
