Participants of each of the three cohorts of the programme are required to attend lessons covering a wide range of topics, including insurance and relevant laws, financial planning, investment management, and risk management, over three weeks. Not only can they equip themselves with comprehensive knowledge in financial and wealth management and keep abreast of the industry trends, but they can earn 12 CPD hours to fulfil the continuing professional development requirements upon completion.
"Metis is pleased to become CII's first official International Professional Partners Firm in Asia and has had some fruitful collaborations with the institute in recent months. Today, we are bringing the Group's members and business partners a valuable opportunity to join the institute's training programme to upgrade their professional standards. It reflects our dedication to striving for improvement and serving our clients with the utmost quality. I would like to express my gratitude for CII's support and recognition and look forward to forging an even stronger relationship with the institute," says Dr Cheung in a short remark before the commencement of the first class on 29 September 2022.
As well, Metis was invited to CII's Dive In 2022 Hong Kong seminar, themed "Fostering Psychological Safety", the day before (28 September 2022). At the opening ceremony, Quentin Hau, the Group's Deputy Director of the Business Development Department, was invited to go up to the stage by the institute, who thanked Metis and other event partners.
Metis was the sole sponsor of CII's international webinar in June and charity virtual run in August, and the institute has published our expert's article about the Cook Islands trust in its magazine, The Asia-Pacific Journal. By joining hands together, we hope to facilitate industry development and give back to society.
