Certificate In Wealth Management

The Certificate in Wealth Management (WMA) covers the essentials of wealth planning, private client asset management, fund management, advisory functions, financial products & regulations in an Indian context.

This Certificate is designed to upskill relationship managers so that they can provide broader advice, recognize and accommodate client complexity and meet evolving client needs.

Demand for wealth management services in India has been growing at a very health rate over the last few decades. A growing base of affluent and HNW individuals, an increasing focus on overseas markets, the emergence of new players and a gradual sophistication in product offerings are some of the factors which are helping the Indian wealth management grow.

However to meet the questions posed by ever-changing financial markets and ever-growing expectations of the clients, there is a pressing need for more capable and experienced wealth management talent. Equalifi’s Certificate in Wealth Management (WMA) is designed to plug this gap.

Failure to comply with the audit, falsification or misrepresentation of requested information and/or any unprofessional conduct will result in denial/cancellation of the exam registration and/or revocation of the program certificate. Candidates subject to audit will be notified by e-mail and will have 10 business days to respond. Once selected for audit, candidates will be required to satisfy the audit requirements before being able to receive the final certificate.
