The FundApps Academy

Toby teaching

Here at FundApps we have been dissecting the world of Shareholding Disclosure for over 10 years and it's apparent that the complexities which exist within these global regulations are often underestimated. To overcome the gaps in knowledge causing both regulatory and reputational risks we have launched The FundApps Academy.

A Series of Training Courses Designed for Compliance Professionals

Compliance professionals need an expert source of information presented in an intuitive way to evaluate regulatory interpretation and better understand the nuances and common pitfalls, which other’s have learned from experience to avoid. The FundApps Academy is helping compliance professionals to fill certain knowledge gaps, before regulators come knocking!


What's the format?

This is a growing series of online subscription-based learning seminars aimed at helping both those who are new to Shareholding Disclosure and those who want to deepen their knowledge. Each seminar consists of several engaging in-depth videos, concise chapter summaries and a quiz to test your knowledge. They each take just half a day to complete and you can go at your own pace.


Who is it presented by?

All of the training seminars are presented by Ebbe Filt, FundApps’ Subject Matter Expert. He advises the world’s largest asset managers and most reputable hedge funds on regulatory interpretation and compliance processes. You will be receiving direct instruction from a recognised world expert.


How much does it cost?

Each seminar costs just £175 ex. VAT. We are confident that you'll find the course useful, but just in case you're hesitating, consider our 100% money back guarantee. If you find that the seminar hasn't met your expectations, simply drop us a note after you've participated in all the lessons and we’ll refund your entire tuition.

"The FundApps Academy helped me gain a deep understanding of the Transparency Directive and all of its complexities. The content is presented in a clear and engaging way, and the mixture of videos, text and questions throughout makes this difficult topic easy to understand."

Guy Bevan, Senior Consultant FS, PWC
