Historic institution launches new generation financial training

The New York Institute of Finance launches new model for financial education: Subscription-based Education

NEW YORK – November 11, 2014 – Leading financial education training provider the New York Institute of Finance (NYIF) today announced it is revolutionizing educational delivery with the launch of a subscription-based Risk and Compliance educational content system (risk.nyif.com). The risk and compliance solution is the first in a series of finance subscription-based services that NYIF plans to roll out over the next year.

The risk and compliance subscription provide users with key industry content on topical issues. Content is gathered from leading sources including: the Financial Times, curated materials from the web, along with academic educational materials developed by some of the industry’s most respected professionals including NYIF faculty leader, Claudia Crowley, former CEO of NYSE Regulation. Content is also delivered to mobile devices including cell phones and tablets for even greater ease of use.

According to Lee Arthur, Managing Director, New York Institute of Finance & Execsense, the power of subscription-based learning lies with its ability to provide professionals with the information they need, when they need it.

“The complexity in business is quickening. Understanding what to do and how to do it requires weekly personal investment in education and analysis rather than yearly. NYIF was born the first educational provider for the financial industry and it is our mission to lead the way in managing complexity. An integral part of this responsibility is to ensure we remain relevant and progressive to support today’s under fire professionals,” said Lee Arthur, Managing Director, New York Institute of Finance & Execsense.

“We offer a range of educational delivery models including: online, in-person skills-training and now, subscription-based learning. Ultimately, we are aiming to tool-up finance professionals with knowledge, useable skills and strategic-approaches to excel in their roles. In particular, the Risk and Compliance subscription is an ideal educational approach to provide professionals with the most relevant and usable information to enable them to protect their businesses, assuring their firms’ compliance and avoid regulatory concerns.”
