However, with the advent of professional wealth management training courses from extremely well placed institutes such as IIFP, it makes perfect sense that every person interested in planning his own finances enroll in a wealth management training course.
For the more serious, there is also the Diploma in Wealth Management on offer. And the surprising thing is that not everyone who enrolls in the course is a professional in finance, taxation or accounting. According to Mr. Arun Dixit, who teaches one of the working professional courses at the institute, most of the enquiries for enrolment are from employees and house wives who would like to take up wealth management courses so that they can plan their own finances and can extend their rupee a little more.
As a majority of the country still lives in joint families, most of the thoughts of parents go towards making their children's lives more secure, and that is one of the key factors that drives people to go in for wealth management courses, says Mr. Dixit. And he's right. When we spoke to a few students (actually working professionals who enrolled for the course), the primary goal of most of them was to make their finances better, by understanding the concept behind investing, insurance and the other financial instruments.
Running a wealth management institute for training purpose is a truly brilliant idea, and IIFP is already reaping the benefits of being a pioneer in the field. Most of the people who look for wealth management courses contact IIFP first! There are a variety of offerings at the institute, and the various levels of training are suitable for people with various kinds of back grounds. So, depending on the requirement you have, you can consider which course would suit you. There are also full time and part time courses. For more information, log on to www.iifpindia.com.
