Incapital Launches New Continuing Education Program Focused on Market-Linked Products Themes

Enhanced experience of Incapital’s CE program better equips financial professionals with advanced industry knowledge

Chicago, IL October 22, 2014 – Incapital LLC, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income and other financial products, announced today a re-launch of its Market-Linked Products Continuing Education (CE) program designed for financial professionals. Accessible on both Incapital.com and StructuredInvestments.com, the CE program is targeted for financial advisors looking to enhance their knowledge of key topics within Market-Linked Products asset classes.

“In an increasingly complex investment environment, financial professionals are expected to be well equipped with technical information focused on strategies, risk information and access to a broad array of asset classes ”, said Glenn Lotenberg, Managing Director of Incapital. "Our CE modules will help advisors bring innovative strategies to an increasingly sophisticated client base. Additionally, the Market-Linked Products CE program may provide financial professionals an opportunity to satisfy their firm’s CE credit requirement.”

As an industry leader, Incapital is committed to delivering educational resources and tools that help financial professionals stay abreast of the evolving markets in structured notes and market-linked CDs. Incapital has been active in educating financial advisors since 2005, and has been awarded U.S. Distributor of the Year by Structured Products magazine seven times and mtn-i three times. A major focus of each award has been on Incapital's CE initiatives.

Incapital's new CE program is an enhancement of prior modules, with engaging and interactive content -- also featuring a new video learning format with an interactive course exam at the end of each section. The suite of five education courses cover Suitability and Risk Considerations, Principal Protected Products, Non-Principal Protected Notes, Volatility, and Rates & CPI-linked notes.

Another key feature of this improved program is a personalized educational dashboard so that users can track their progress over time. From one easily accessible web page, financial professionals are able to access the date of course completion as well as download and print their course exam certificate. Completion of the course may qualify for firm CE credit. Please note that course material is subject to the financial professional’s firm CE policies. Although financial professionals are encouraged to re-take the new suite of courses, for those registered users who previously passed an exam, the dashboard will show completed courses and accessible certificates.
