Better understanding leads to better investors, so we want to help our IFM members to understand the trading platform, the services, and the marketplace. On the sunny morning of November 1st 2007, IFMA announces that it will hold the grand opening ceremony for the new committee so called Financial Futures Committee (FFC) at IFMA headquarters. Take advantage of our instructional materials and educational resources designed especially for self-directed investors like you who want to take control of your own investments and learn more about managing your portfolio. The Committee will lead a team of 20 financial futures experts to develop the educational program called Financial Futures Analyst, FFA, and training materials. The FFA certificates will be issued after the first class of trainees of November 2007 pass the required exams and capacity evaluation.
