Commenting on the partnership, Joe Gorey, Principal at IBAT College Dublin says: “COVID-19 has redefined how individuals think about investing and we’ve witnessed a significant surge in the number of people joining the stock market at unprecedented rates – there is an increased risk appetite.
Through our partnership with LAT, we aim to leverage the growing interest and demand for financial trading by extending our portfolio of short, professional courses to working professionals who want to upgrade their skills for personal or professional use.
We have a team of experienced traders who provide students with essential tips while boosting their knowledge of the financial markets. We also offer a range of flexible study methods including teaching students how to trade online via live interactive classes, daily webinars and expert mentor support while using real-time trading platforms.”
Paddy Osborn, Managing Director and Academic Dean for London Academy of Trading added: “Demand for trading courses has never been greater, so we’re thrilled to be working with a prestigious institution such as IBAT to bring financial markets knowledge and trading skills to a wider audience. Many individuals dive into trading without really understanding the processes or risks involved, so our aim is to teach people how to interpret fundamental and technical analysis, as well as showing them how to control their emotions and manage risks when trading.”
