The best wealth management resources for wealthtech experts and software engineers
WealthTech Club published a list of informative resources for WealthTech experts and software engineers yesterday.

The list, written by Vasyl Soloshchuk and aimed at helping experts and software engineers broaden their knowledge of wealth management, includes courses and training, book recommendations and online resources.

Here were some of their suggestions:

Courses and Training

The list of courses and training come from places such as the NY Institute of Finance, the Association of International Wealth Management, the American Banking Association, CPDwise and the Fintech Circle Institute.

They all provide a range of courses in training, from an Online Professional Certificate in Wealth Management, or in Asset Management, to a course Introducing CIWM, and training in Asset Allocation and Portfolio Management.

However, the resources suggested aren’t just in wealth and asset management. They also provided recommendations for courses in portfolio management, such as Portfolio Management from RICE Online Learning, Risk Management, such as the Diploma in Risk Management, and investments management, such as Investing 101: the Complete Online Investing Course.

The broad range of courses provide solutions to gain more training, or even that initial training – to expand on your knowledge and skill set.
