The Fund Administration and Corporate Services Academy (FACSA) from Albany Beck is an intensive, industry-focused, 4-week course which equips consultants with the high-level skills they need to manage funds on behalf of clients. 

Fund Administrators play a pivotal role in safeguarding investor assets, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, and maintaining transparency throughout the investment lifecycle. 

With tasks ranging from managing daily transactions and maintaining investor records to conducting risk assessments and preparing financial reports, having a team that fully understands how a fund administrator works is imperative for any financial services company that strives to achieve the highest standards of efficiency, integrity, and compliance.

This practical, hands-on training course covers the entire discipline of Fund Administration and Corporate Services, including key, end-to-end processes and bespoke training on more complex structures and exotic funds. 

FACSA gives consultants the skills and confidence to hit the ground running, creating value and operational efficiency within your organisation, and freeing your time up to concentrate on servicing your clients and growing your business.

What our team have to say

"From my experience working with multinational financial institutions in different jurisdictions both on- and off-shore, I understand the importance of industry knowledge coupled with operational knowhow. However, in today’s challenging environment it is equally important to understand how operations fit with regulation, ensuring that you approach your operations in a manner that is risk aware and risk adverse."
