​Asset Management Certification

The Asset Management industry takes centre stage on the Luxembourg economic landscape. The sector is growing and facing unprecedented challenges, one of which is the transformation of the workforce and the way we work.
PwC’s Academy Asset Management certification is a comprehensive programme that covers the entire fund life cycle. From set-up to liquidation, this modular will enable the participant to discover and thoroughly understand how a fund operates. The training is highly practical and interactive, with hands-on exercises, case studies, and real-life simulations. After attending the course modules, participants may choose to take a final certification step. This programme can be customised to mirror the specifications of your organisation.
From fund structures, to IT systems, through your internal jargon, we can also make this learning journey YOUR own, adapted to the specificities of your organisation, which will reinforce and speed up implementation of knowledge into the workplace.
