The sessions will be conducted in both Arabic and English. The English sessions will be held from 8 am to 12 noon, while the Arabic sessions will be held from 1pm to 5pm.
A group of highly qualified professionals from BIBF will conduct the sessions which will take place at Bahrain Bourse’s premises at Bahrain Financial Harbour. Enrollment in the training sessions will be open to Bahrainis and non-Bahrainis through Bahrain Bourse website starting from Monday, 24th November 2014.
Shaikh Khalifa Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, CEO of Bahrain Bourse said: “This initiative comes in line with the framework of implementing the strategic plan of the Bourse in which investment awareness is one of its main pillars. A series of awareness sessions will be conducted in cooperation with BIBF, which is considered one of our strategic partners.” Shaikh Khalifa added, “These sessions aim to spread investment awareness to assist participants in identifying their rights and obligations when dealing with all capital market related institutions. We hope that this training session benefits the largest possible number of citizens and residents.”
BIBF’s Director Solveig Nicklos stressed the importance of strategic partnerships with the public and private sectors in order to address the development needs of the country. She pointed out that it aligns with BIBF’s broader objectives, and that to meet these objectives the institute recently made a number of expansions, most notably the recent launch of the educational dealing room at the BIBF premises.
This initiative came as a result of the MoU that was signed between BHB & BIBF in February 2014, paving the way to providing advanced professional standards services in areas of mutual interest especially those related to the capital market sector.
