Specialist pensions and financial services expertise
Crown Agents’ specialist pensions and financial services training courses are designed to help banks and insurance professionals tackle significant challenges and maximise opportunities for growth and development.
Use of new technologies and innovative strategies beyond the traditional bank branch model are needed to optimise the development of banking products and services in emerging markets. Robust insurance provision is essential for growth and social welfare, but still underdeveloped in many countries.
Our programmes for banking and insurance professionals provide delegates with in-depth technical understanding of latest global best practice approaches and technologies. These include mobile money and agency banking, which represent a significant opportunity to increase financial inclusion as FinTech changes the financial services landscape worldwide.
