Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The program focuses on building capacity by training rising stars from the regulatory bodies (MoFs, Central Banks, and CM Authorities) and the Stock Exchanges of developing institutions through an intense 9-month training split between academic training at the university and internship in a financial institution. The program is offered both in English and in French with offerings in the US and France.

The program, at both the US and France offerings, consists of two parts.

  • 4 and half months - classroom sessions taught by experienced University Professors at the George Washington University or Paris Dauphine campuses to learn about the fundamentals of capital markets. In addition to academic lectures, experienced practitioners from reputable financial institutions are invited to share their markets experience through the program’s lecture series.
  • 4 months - internship component at financial institutions in the US or Europe to gain hands-on experience working with private sector institutions to understand the importance of financial infrastructure to support the development of nascent capital markets. These include Standard Chartered Bank, Millennium Management, UBS Financial Services; as well as in international organizations such as IFC and IBRD.
People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

The objective of this initiative is to build a network of qualified capital market practitioners within key regulatory and policy making institutions to help steer the creation and growth of robust capital markets across frontier economies. Specifically:
1) Develop qualified human capacity within central banks, ministries of finance and regulatory agencies in developing economies
2) Build a deep network of practitioners, regulators, and policy makers to be key points of contact and thereby support IFC's efforts to promote capital-market development in our target countries.
3) Equip participants to understand various technical, regulatory, and institutional aspects impacting the operation of capital markets, such that they will be in a better position to contribute to the development of capital markets in their respective countries.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
