Published: December 2018 | ISBN: 9781860727375

The complete study guide for the core modules of ICSA’s Level 4 International Finance and Administration qualifications. This guide provides an introduction to the international business environment and principles of trust and company law. It covers a range of topics, including the processes involved in offshore banking and how international finance centres are regulated and supervised. It also explores how valid trusts are created, principles of trust and company administration and steps to take to effectively prevent financial crime.

To help students apply principles and theory to real-life business situations, this text contains:

  • Case law and case examples
  • ‘Test yourself’ questions with full, worked answers
  • Worked examples and ‘stop and think’ scenarios

Designed as an introductory programme for those who work, or want to work, in international finance, ICSA’s IFA qualifications are transferable across jurisdictions. The qualifications are regulator-recognised in Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and the British Virgin Islands.
