The course was quite enlightening. As in most professions, there is no one distinct formula to success. All you can receive is guidance from people in your specific field.
The London Stock Exchange (LSE) Institutional Training Programme has been by far the best guidance platform I have experienced. The caliber of instructors was on its own level. It was quite a privilege to sit under the instructions of gurus who have decades of experience under their belt. I also got to interact and network with likeminded peers from different educational and work backgrounds.
I got to visit the famous LSE offices in London and view the opening of the market which was an exciting experience. The class ambiance was conducive for learning and it was arranged in a manner that optimized interaction with instructors and fellow participants. Additionally, the staff was very pleasant and kind. They were always ready to give you a hand when you needed it.
I amassed a wealth of information from the programme and this is just a snapshot of the knowledge I acquired. I learnt about different asset classes such as Bonds, Derivatives, Foreign Exchange and Equities. With this I managed to attain the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment’s (CISI), Introduction to Securities & Investment qualification. Also I got to learn about the biases to look out for as I trade and the role of psychology in trading. Furthermore I was taught different risk management strategies which I could use to protect my capital and profits. In addition I learnt in depth about technical and fundamental analysis; although these two methods may be different, they complement each other and one should have an understanding of both. At the end of the course we held a trading simulation where we were the market makers. It was a fascinating experience.
In summary, they engraved in me the belief that although it will not be easy, it is possible to become a success. Also, they equipped me with the necessary tools to achieve this success faster. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to prosper as an Institutional trader.
For me, it was a privileged to have attended such a prestigious course in association with the London Stock Exchange and Knightsbridge Trading Academy.
The course venues were excellent and all the sessions commenced on time. Material was well prepared and well presented and particularly encouraging, were the credentials of those that presented during the course. In particular, thanks are due to Trevor Neil for his dedication and input. His subject knowledge was extensive to say the least and his patience and ability to explain and make things simple were an added credit to him. Not to detract from all the other presenters, who so happily shared their experience and knowledge and gave a very exact definition of their particular fields. Attention to detail on a huge subject base was Excellent!
The course has definitely given me the building blocks with which to harness my desire to be in control of my wealth creation and preservation, and together with the CISI Qualification, the credibility to position myself as knowledgeable and confident that I am able to Trade successfully with a good understanding of the underlying fundamentals that that are required to prosper. The inherent risks and the understanding of them being crucial to the decision making process.
All of the staff from Knightsbridge and the LSE were charming, helpful and capable. The whole program was slick and efficient.
I would encourage those that haven’t, to take this opportunity to invest in this program as soon as they can whilst it is still available. Its a must.

I had the pleasure of being taught by Trevor Neil and many other renowned individuals in the industry, they were very welcoming and approachable allowing me to learn aspects beyond the syllabus.
