Investment Management Certificate (IMC)

The Investment Management Certificate (IMC) is an approved threshold competency examination administered by CFA Society of the UK - a recognised professional body with a mission to lead and promote the development of the investment profession in the UK.

Recognised industry qualification

Currently held by over 15,000 investment professionals, the Investment Management Certificate (IMC) is recognised by the fund management industry as the entry level qualification of choice for those working in financial analysis and investment management in the UK.

As well being an FSA approved threshold competency examination, the IMC offers a good introduction to the financial services industry and can also act as a solid foundation for delegates looking to progress to Level I of the CFA Program.

Upon completion of the IMC, delegates are able to apply for membership of the CFA Society of the UK (CFA UK). Membership and participation in events can help to demonstrate to employers a commitment to high standards of professional practice in investment analysis, portfolio management and related disciplines.
