Following on from my First Impressions of Pensions post, I mentioned that I was to sit my first IOC examination; Introduction to Securities and Investments in the first week of December. I am now delighted to be able to say that I passed the exam on Thursday and achieved a ‘Pass with Merit’ result.
I found the course content very interesting and also very relevant to the jobs that I have done over the past fifteen months here at Rathbones.
As of this week, the second IOC exam material; UK Financial Regulation has been added to my online study page and I plan to start this right away in order to build on the material from the first exam.
In addition to this news, we had our office Christmas Party on Friday at the Marriott Hotel which turned out to be a fantastic night and also a great way to meet new people in the company. Although, I still find it hard to believe that it has been a year since the last office Christmas party!!
