CSI’s Fixed Income Trading and Sales (FIT) course helps students gain marketability as they apply for entry into fixed-income trading and sales positions or aspire to more senior careers in fixed-income trading and sales. In either case, completion of this course is a true signal to prospective or current employers that they are motivated to continuously improve their knowledge base. Up until now, there have not been any courses to authenticate key learnings and strategies for professional traders. While understanding the basic concepts of fixed income securities, students will be immersed in how to apply critical thinking in a fast-paced environment. FIT is also one of the requirements towards the path to CSI’s Certificate in Fixed Income Trading and Sales.
The Fixed Income Trading and Sales course is designed for students who aspire to become fixed-income sales representatives or trader or are already in a junior role and want to progress. They most likely have already taken the CSC®. This includes investment representatives, money market, and junior bond trading desk staff. Investment advisors who wish to learn more about fixed income trading and the workings of a trading desk will benefit from this course as well.
