In order to dispense quality intermediation, personnel working in the industry need to (i) follow a certain code of conduct usually achieved through regulations and (ii) possess requisite skills and knowledge acquired through a system of testing and certification.

As intermediation involves human expertise more than technological support, it is important that a person providing intermediation in the industry has a proper understanding of the business and the skills to help it remain competitive. In order to ensure this, it has become an accepted international practice for personnel working for market intermediaries to be adequately certified.

Such testing and certification has assumed significance in India as there is no formal education or training on financial markets, especially in the area of operations, while at the same time the market has undergone a complete transformation in the recent years.

A variety of new functions that need different levels and nature of specialisation and orientation have emerged. The industry has a large work force with varying levels of professional qualifications, skills and experience that do not necessarily match their work responsibilities.

Taking into account international experience and the needs of the Indian financial markets, with a view for protecting interests of investors in financial markets and more importantly, for minimising risks of losses arising out of deficient understanding of markets and instruments, National Stock Exchange introduced in 1998 a facility for testing and certification by launching NSE's Certification in Financial Markets (NCFM).

Am a CA final student. I want to pursue my career in equity research area.... What is the prospect of this NCFM certification? I went through the material and found it very informative.

No formal educational background is necessary for registration to the NCFM programme. Nor is there an age requirement. However, candidates are expected to be numerate and comfortable with written English.
