Mandatory Certifications for Monaco Financial Institutions

Banking, Financial, and ESG Professional Certification


To strengthen the skill level of employees of the Monegasque financial institutions, and reputation of excellence of the Financial Center, the Monaco Government, at the initiative of the Association Monégasque des Activités Financières (AMAF), has established the Banking, Financial, and ESG Professional Certification, a mandatory program, implemented since 2014 and delivered by IUM, in collaboration with Auriga Legal Services and Intelleval.

The Banking, Financial, and ESG Professional Certification is a mandatory program designed to enhance the skills of employees in Monaco’s financial institutions and uphold the reputation of excellence in the sector. This program has been in effect since May 2, 2014. Individuals affected by this certification include managers, sales representatives, financial analysts, and market operators working in banks and asset management companies.
Two sessions are held each year, from September to December and from January to April. English-language courses are also offered once a year if a minimum of 15 participants is reached. The training consists of 44 hours of classes spread over 11 half-days and covers two modules: the first focusing on technical and ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) aspects, and the second module addressing Monaco’s regulatory specifics and ethics.
