Experts Review On Fmw

"IBAF Academy's training program conducted by NISM is a very well structured, rigorous program which has the right blend of theory and practice and prepares participants to start work from DAY 1 across a few roles in the securities markets. The illusion of SEBI mandatory certifications in it makes them ready as per the requisite regulations in the country. The personality improvement modules hones up their soft skills and builds confidence"
