2 An Introduction to the Diploma in Fund Administration The funds industry has grown extensively over the last decade but has experienced significant turbulence and change in recent months. The ability of fund professionals to adapt to current circumstances will, to a degree, determine the success of the funds. Industry change creates opportunities, but it also increases demands. The role of international fund administrators is challenging. They must ensure that the fund is being run in accordance with its published objectives and that its back-office operations are managed efficiently and effectively for the benefit of the investors. This function is becoming increasingly specialised and requires professional skills across a range of disciplines, including legal, accounting, management and investment. The Diploma in Fund Administration covers all of the major aspects of the fund industry, and in particular, the organisation and operations of hedge funds. It is designed to provide administrators with the knowledge and professional skills required to undertake the daily operations of a fund in a consistent, productive and competent manner. Designed for fund practitioners, the Diploma provides detailed knowledge and practical skills. It is a certificated, professional education programme. Awarded in association with the University of Manchester Business School, the Diploma is a benchmark qualification demonstrating excellence. The Diploma is suitable for those fund practitioners who are relatively new to the industry as well as those who already have some practical experience and want to improve their knowledge. Individuals who complete the Diploma will gain a practical insight into the funds industry and be able to fulfil their responsibilities with confidence. By drawing upon international best practice, the Diploma helps prepare fund practitioners to adapt and change to meet the challenges of a constantly evolving external environment.
