ASX Accredited Listed Product Adviser Program
Despite the volatility inherent in the financial markets, investor demand for listed investments is growing. So too is the need for advisers to have access to the knowledge and skills to provide quality advice on listed investments.
The more you know about the types of listed products and the strategies behind their use the better you can help your clients take advantage of them. This is especially relevant in an advisory envrionment where a fee for services business model is driving the need to explore new investment options while effectively managing associated risks.
ASX, together with Kaplan Professional, offers the ALPA program to help you get a detailed understanding of the characteristics of listed products and learn how to apply listed products in a wealth management strategy.
What is covered?
The course focuses on the range of ASX listed products including equities, interest rate securities, listed managed investments, warrants and options. Topics include:
- Equities, warrants, ETOs, futures, A-REITs and listed investment trusts
- The fundamentals of Interest Rate Securities and valuation methodology
- Portfolio construction using listed investments
- Stock selection and analysis
- Strategies in the use of derivatives
- Gearing in Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs)
