The ongoing training of financial advisors is not only a mandatory regulation but also an opportunity for development and improvement for the sector. This is how RankiaPro, Rankia’s project aimed exclusively at professionals in the asset management industry, and W&K Financial EdTech, the first EdTech accredited on the CNMV list, see it. Both entities are joining forces to replicate Recertify, the digital content hub model developed by W&K Financial Education, on RankiaPro’s web platform and make available to its thousands of users a portal of approved content to meet the requirements of continuous training for advisory professionals required by MiFID II regulations and ESMA guidelines.
From their side, RankiaPro will provide Recertify with quality content. This new European regulation seeks to guarantee transparency in the financial markets and increase investor protection when purchasing a product, and the ongoing training of professionals is a guarantee requirement for a better service.
“Training is a key part of Rankia’s mission to help asset managers make better investment decisions, it is part of our essence and it is also a regulatory obligation that advisors must comply with. Therefore, thanks to this agreement with W&K Financial Education, RankiaPro makes it easier for all our users to learn the skills and knowledge in the financial area and their accreditation”.Miguel Arias, CEO and founder of RankiaPro
“This collaboration agreement and technological integration of our training offer with RankiaPro exemplifies our vision and approach to open, digital and inclusive business and enhances our value proposition with a view to consolidating Recertify as the most powerful MiFID II continuous training solution in terms of content and its attractive format for professionals and organisations in the sector”.Fernando Rojano, Head of Business Development at W&K Financial EdTech
W&K Financial Education came to the market in 2019 with the first programme to become a TFA financial advisor 100% online, certified by the CNMV, under the European MiFID II regulations. Last year Value School joined the project as the first content provider and selector.
In October 2017 Rankia went a step further, launching a new project aimed exclusively at professionals in the asset management industry, RankiaPro, which aims to help professionals make better investment decisions, enhancing networking and relationships between them.
Rankia began its trajectory in 2003 and, since then, has become the leading Spanish-speaking online financial community, a meeting point where our users share their experiences and opinions on investment management and personal finance.
