The Certified Investment Professional® (CIP) Program

is unique as it combines securities operations theory with applied science. A certified member is not only able to learn the necessary topics and pass the exams, but is also able to translate these in practice by writing a structured document (thesis) and give a management presentation (soft skill). The permanent education program safeguards the knowledge gained by the registered members.
