If you want to develop a career in finance then why not focus on the role of an Investment Banking Asset Management Analyst. An investment analyst provides research and information to help traders, fund managers and stockbrokers make decisions about investments. The information you provide ensures investment portfolios are well managed and that potential investment opportunities are highlighted. An investment banking analyst evaluates and researches investment opportunities with the aim of finding the investment that best meets the goals of their corporate clients. Investment banking analysts assess opportunities and recommend investments based on client needs and goals. If this is of interest to you then enrol on this new generation of Gold Standard qualifications as a technical alternative to A Levels. T Levels are developed by the Institute of Apprenticeships; employers and the Department for Education. The T Level Technical Qualification in Finance provides the opportunity to specialise in the role of an Invest Banking Asset Management Analyst
T-Level's are split into three main sections:
1) Technical qualification (TQ): This is the main, classroom-based element. Students will learn about their chosen sectors through a curriculum designed by employers and developed by the awarding organisation (AO) Pearsons. This is made up of core content and then the opportunity to specialise into 1 of 4 different occupational specialisms, in this case an Invest Banking Asset Management Analyst. Through the core content, students will develop an understanding of a broad range of issues relevant to the sector, including:
2) Industry placement: This runs for a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) overall and will give students practical insights into their sector and an opportunity to embed the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.
3) English, maths and digital provision: These are also built into the classroom-based element of the T Level, meaning students will be given a solid foundation of transferable skills.
To achieve this T Level, learners must meet all requirements of the T Level framework of which the technical qualification is one part. Learners must successfully complete an industry placement, maths and English at level 2
Learners must complete:
Two externally set exams, one employer-set project and one occupational specialism assessment.
The T Level in Finance aims to progress students into one of 4 occupational specialisms through employment or as an Apprentice. These specialisms are Financial Compliance Risk Analyst, Insurance Practitioner, Invest Banking Asset Management Analyst or Retail and Commercial Banking Analyst. Furthermore, the completion of this qualifications gives students the opportunity to progress onto higher education courses and training.
