The Board of Directors are ultimately accountable for what happens within a Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF) and sign a number of reports for submission to CySEC to this effect. It is important for directors – and those who prepare the reports for directors to sign – to be familiar with the relevant rules and regulations upon which these reports are written, for purposes of approving these reports with integrity and after exercising comprehensive and robust review.
In addition, there will be an emphasis on understanding why the rules and regulations impose a particular operational and reporting regime on the CIF, thus ensuring directors and other people affect are equipped to meet standards and expectations of wider stakeholders.

Industry Expert | Petros Florides
Petros Florides is an honours graduate and qualified member of four professional bodies with over 25 years financial services experience in areas of private banking, fund management, stockbroking, private equity, proprietary trading and microfinance. He is currently employed by World Vision International as Director of Global Governance for the regions of Europe, Middle East and Asia. Petros has published numerous articles on governance and related areas, and was the lead author of the Code for Public Sector Governance which, after five years of public consultation, was approved by the Cyprus Council of Ministers in July 2019 for implementation.
He is also a Non-Executive Director of Windsor Brokers, NetU Consultants, Cyprowealth Advisory Services and Pearlscope. Petros is Co-Founder of the Cyprus National Advisory Council for the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investments (‘CISI’), and has also served on its UK Board of Trustees since June 2019. He is also accredited in two different methods of psychometric testing, and integrates an understanding of human behaviour in his teaching of professional and executive courses in the areas of governance, risk, leadership and ethics through CISI Accredited Training Providers. Petros is also a regular speaker at public events on the same subjects.
The training style for this course will be to review the text of the law, rules and regulation but place within the context of why it is required by the regulator in meeting expectations of wider stakeholders.
The trainer will be sharing his own experience of the legal and regulatory regime as a member of a CIF board, but also encouraging other participants to share their own practical insights for enhanced learning.
A discursive style of transferring information will aim to help participants see beyond mere compliance and towards further enhancing their performance and level of professionalism, regardless of their role within in CIF.
This programme may be approved for up to 6 CPD units in Financial Regulation. Eligibility criteria and CPD Units are verified directly by your association, regulator or other bodies which you hold membership.
