What is FIDSA

FIDSA or Fixed-Income and Derivatives Standard Accreditation is a widely recognised standard of product knowledge. Here at SLG we offer the training for FIDSA tests. The tests are held at convenient venues and regularly.

The FIDSA test covers Fixed income, Interest Rate and Credit Products and was originally devised for internal use at a ‘Systemically Important’ US bank but now available to a wider group of candidates.

Access to all FIDSA courses requires Gold Membership.
