Source introduces new CPD-accredited ETP webinars

Source has introduced a new series of CPD-accredited ETP webinars designed to help advisors fulfill the learning requirements of the Retail Distribution Review.

As a fully CISI-approved provider, Source has run CPD-accredited courses on a wide array of topics surrounding the ETP industry, coinciding with the introduction of the Retail Distribution Review in January.

The webinars are typically held alongside its partners: Pimco, Man GLG, BofAML, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley and Nomura.

The new webinars cover a range of subject areas. Topics include an insight into alpha capture from broker recommendations in European and Asian equities with Man GLG; views on emerging market debt and discussion on GDP-weighted indices with Pimco; and an overview and insight into the global buyout fund universe, exploring liquid exposure to private equity trends without direct investment in private equity funds.

Since the implementation of RDR, impacted advisors require 35 CPD hours, of which 21 hours must be structured learning. Through its many courses, Source has to date in 2013 provided more than 10 hours of structured learning to over 350 professional investors.

Content which has been well received includes the US shale energy revolution, opportunities in emerging market debt and interest in alpha capture strategies for European and Asian equity exposure.

Michael John Lytle, Chief Development Officer of Source, said: “The attendees continue show interest in learning more about differentiated content and the widening spectrum of asset classes available to UK investors. Not surprisingly, the majority of the take up for our courses has come from private wealth and discretionary managers as they move to a value-added asset allocation model.”

Source manages more than $15 billion in ETP assets.
