Director , Clear Capital Markets
Arjun is an outstanding and sharp teacher; it is a pleasure to work in his office, and I am proud to say he is my boss!...
Great financial training and market insights. Excellent for anyone with an interest in investment or broker kind sales experience. What really stuck with me was the solid analysis skills I got for a multitude of financial products (commodities, bonds, equities, ETF's, funds, forex, emerging markets, etc.). After getting a one month placement, I'm happy to say: outstanding value for money. Highly recommended.
Fantastic, I signed up to the 1 day junior course with not a lot of idea what to expect. But right from the get-go the tutors had a fountain of knowledge and were both extremely helpful. The course gave me a true understanding of what to expect while being a Junior Broker. A wealth of information and skill has been passed onto us during this short period of time. I would recommend this course to anyone as it has given me ambitions and goals. Well worth the money.
In one day, the course fulfilled my curiosity about the exhilarating and money-driven career of stockbroking. Arjun and Patrick, both highly experienced professionals in the industry, not only gave us a basic introduction of what it takes to be a successful broker, but also managed to go through a range of technicals with ease and passion. It made me all the more keen to accept the 1 month internship they were offering after I had passed the exam, which they had set on the day. The internship was definitely a worthwhile experience and has heightened my CV enabling me to kick-start my career...
I highly recommend the one day junior stock broker course. After graduating from University, my goal is to have a career in the stock market and educate myself as much as possible. This one day intensive course exceeded my expectations!
Although, individuals may be sceptical about the amount of information provided in one day, I can say after completing this course that both Patrick and Arjun give concise and detailed technical information and vital fundamentals with references to real life examples. I highly recommend this course.
Great course and money well spent. Arjun the course tutor was extremely informative and helpful throughout the day, and gave great advice into the world of trading. Great course for those new to trading like myself, or those who want a career in trading in the future. I would very much recommend this course as it is a great starting point to learning the fundamentals of successful trading, and plenty of guidance on the next steps should you wish to do the professional qualifications. So much covered within one day, but because the size of the class was no greater than 20 people the whole session was very proactive and all done within one day!
The IOB Junior Stockbroker course is perfect for anyone looking to break into the stockbroking industry without previous experience. The one-day intensive course could not be more informative by offering training in both technical/fundamental analyses as well as the art of pitching. These new skills are tested through a trial period at one of their partner firms with a possibility of a full-time position; making the IOB's Junior Stockbroking course so unique.
Having been mentored by both Directors in broking, trading as well as pitching, I would encourage anyone interested in a career in stockbroking to sign up.
I have learnt a tremendous amount from the training, and especially from the trial period, and I am certain that they will be extremely useful in my future career in the City.
Extremely beneficial course, gained solid insight in what it requires to become a successful Stock Broker and understand how the financial markets work.
The course covered all the different forms of financial instruments / products used in investing and trading and how they work. I learn't how to read charts, understand how to conduct fundamental and technical analysis, recognise the different factors in the economy which causes the price of assets to fluctuate.
We also received in depth training on how to consult and present investment / trade ideas to clients, how to ascertain which areas of the markets they are interested in , what they hope to achieve and how we can add value to their portfolio. This was extremely valuable as a large part of this profession involves consulting with clients and having the ability to sell the value of a service that can benefit a clients needs.
There was an exam at the end of the day based around everything we learnt. The fact that you receive work placement in a firm on completion of the course is fantastic as not only did I learn how the industry and profession works but I'm also currently at a firm gaining hands on experience.
Junior Stockbroking course was exceptional. Everything you need to know to get started in the world of Broking, and this is just the start. Arjun (Director of IOB) is a Senior Broker, a great guy with outstanding qualities, as a teacher, mentor and person.
I myself, had a great day there and passed the test at the end of the day with 87%. Arjun explained how there is a 30 day trial for students who pass and I instantly volunteered myself to work with him. I was placed at TraderInsight, Arjun's own Financial Research Company for my 30 day trial. I knew this was a good opportunity for me to work my ass off and get the job done. Arjun was pleased with my progress and told me he would send my CV over to one of their partners. The day he sent my details over, I got a call 10 minutes later and had set up an interview for the next day. Next day, I went to the to interview and they offered me a job on the spot.
It really is that easy. If you want to get into this industry, then this is definitely the most productive, most educational and realistic opportunity for you out there. Take my word for it. If your serious about Broking, pull your finger out your arse, get on the course, smash the 30 day trial and start your career.
