Distinguished Leadership in Financial Services
FCSIs represent the highest calibre of financial services professionals. The FCSI is a challenging credential to obtain and maintain because of its stringent requirements, making the Fellows some of the most dedicated in financial services.
As industry leaders and ambassadors, FCSIs are charged with elevating financial services to the highest standards, focusing on the betterment of the industry and setting precedents for future leaders.
Covering All Aspects of Financial ServicesWhile financial services designations may specialize in a particular area of the industry (e.g., investment management, financial planning, derivatives and risk management, etc.), the Fellow covers all areas. This means that you can hold the most senior Canadian financial services credential in your field of expertise.
In addition, FCSIs are required to expand their education by taking courses outside of their realm of expertise. This means that you can add value to your work because not only are you an expert in your field, but you also have a comprehensive understanding of the industry.
