The Indian growth story has cast important implications on the capital market, which has grown sharply with respect to several parameters ranging from number of stock exchanges, other intermediaries and listed stocks to trading volumes, turnover, market instruments and investor population. The unprecedented growth indicates that the securities markets would have a huge demand for professionals every year. However, the roles in this area call for specialized knowledge and skills. There is, therefore, the need to build a resource base of skilled professionals for the securities market.
ICICI Bank has partnered with National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM) to launch Post Graduate Certificate in Securities Markets (PGCSM). The programme aims to create professionals such as Treasury dealers, Fund Managers, Analysts, Institutional Sales Professionals, and Investment Advisors in the securities markets. This partnership is part of ICICI Group's strategy to capacitise for growth.
