Dear current or aspiring Investor Relations professional,
Whether you are already working in investor relations or considering a move into investor relations, why not sign up for the International Certificate in Investor Relations (ICIR) offered by the Investor Relations Professionals Association Singapore (IRPAS).
Offered successfully by IRPAS since 2014, ICIR is an internationally recognised qualification in Investor Relations (IR) regarded as an essential pre-requisite for those entering the IR profession, and also allows the senior practitioners to benchmark their own knowledge against industry standards. In line with IRPAS’ main focus on the fundamental principles and practice of investor relations, ICIR provides you with appropriate factual knowledge of both the regulatory requirements and the financial and market environments within which you would be able to operate effectively.
Best of all, you can study for it in your own country, and attend a one-hour multiple-choice examination in Singapore on 31 October 2019, based on the topics set out in the syllabus. Candidates who pass the examination will be awarded the Certification jointly issued and recognised by both the IRPAS and IR Society UK.
IRPAS believes that capturing best practices and offering a certification program are natural ways to enhance the professionalism of investor relations in the region.
IR Magazine has also featured IRPAS and the ICIR in its article on "Making the Grade" (June 2019).
If you cannot make it for this intake, join us for future intakes of the course which we hold twice a year.
I invite you to enhance your IR learning and further your career by registering for ICIR today.
Mr. Harold Woo
Investor Relations Professionals Association (Singapore)
