Education

For the fourth consecutive year, the Cyprus Fiduciary Association is happy to announce its annual plan of seminars and workshops. The primary target of the Association is to raise the standards of the fiduciary services sector in Cyprus and one of the best ways to achieve this, is by educating and training the sector’s professionals. To this end, the Association has identified the following three educational pillars under which it provides further training and education:

  1. Directorship/ Trustee Services
  2. AML & Compliance
  3. Corporate Administration

The objective of our seminars is to educate fiduciary professionals on their duties and responsibilities and to inform them on the latest sector developments, both local and international. Our aim is to deliver practical and hands-on seminars, with more examples and more real case scenarios.
