How to become CySEC Advanced certified
The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) is the supervisor of all regulated investment activities taking place within and out of Cyprus. Further, CySEC’s mission is to ensure investor protection and mitigate the risk of money laundering and other illegal financial activities from taking place.
To combat illegal financial activities and to ensure the proper functioning of the investment services industry in Cyprus, CySEC requires that professionals employed within investment firms and investment funds are educated to perform their duties. For this, the regulator offers three different qualifications geared towards financial and investment services professionals. These are the CySEC Basic, the CySEC Advanced and the CySEC Anti-Money Laundering (AML) certifications. Each of these CySEC certifications qualify professionals in performing their duties with competence in their workplace and in being aware of their responsibilities and risks.
Out of these CySEC certifications, the CySEC Advanced is the most comprehensive certification offered by the Cypriot regulator. Becoming CySEC Advanced certified is one of the best ways to solidify your understanding of the European investment industry in and out of Cyprus. Additionally, many employers such as Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF), Investment Funds, E-Money Institutions (EMI), and now Crypto-Asset Services Providers (CASP) require their workforce to be CySEC Advanced certified for certain positions within the firm.
