NINE directors at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management in the Channel Islands are celebrating their Institute of Directors (IoD) results with one director achieving the top national score in the exams.
The directors undertook the IoD Certificate in Company Direction which is part of the IoD’s Chartered Director programme.
Ashley Cox, a director in Jersey, received a distinction and attained the highest score nationally in 2013.
The qualification covers an in-depth view of the director role, responsibilities and legal duties of a director, an understanding of the characteristics of an effective board, knowledge of financial terms and concepts and the issues and processes associated with formulating strategic business plans and achieving strategic leadership.
In Jersey, Steve Gully also achieved a distinction for the certificate with Paul Le Brocq, Mark Cleary, Julie Fairclough, Aidan McAvinue and Tony Pitcher gaining passes.
In Guernsey, Ken Bradley and David McNay also achieved a pass grade for the certificate.
Ashley Cox said, “It’s great to have passed the IoD’s Certificate in Company Direction and to have obtained a distinction was a welcome surprise.
“I see the benefits of the course as twofold. There is the way it will impact on the Barclays Channel Islands’ businesses as we look to implement the learning as a senior management team to drive our business forward. It will also help us in relation to the wealth structures we administer for our clients giving our advice and administration a practical edge.”
Paul Savery, managing director of Barclays Wealth and Investment Management in the Channel Islands said, “Barclays is passionate about supporting our employees’ professional development through professional qualifications. These are a fantastic set of results that the senior team should be extremely proud of.
“The IoD exams are advanced professional qualifications so these results really help to reinforce the calibre of the Barclays team.”
