Case study by Chris Murray
When Candriam Investors Group decided to launch an online training academy focused on Sustainable Responsible Investment (SRI) to help intermediaries to better understand SRI approaches to investing, they needed a learning environment and content that would provide maximum impact.
PLD worked with Candriam from the outset to develop the Candriam SRI Academy concept. Our team then designed and implemented the underlying academy software as well as a series of high-quality learning videos based on content Candriam had pulled together. The aim was to ensure that key elements of the content were conveyed in the most engaging and creative ways possible.
The SRI Academy introduces financial intermediaries to the concepts of Sustainable and Responsible Investment as well as the latest research, trends and news from the industry.
At the core of the Candriam SRI Academy are four CPD accredited training modules with integrated assessments that support users' continuous professional development (CPD), award CPD hours and a third party accredited certificate. SRI Academy users are presented with a learning journey that incorporates video, onscreen text, the latest industry reports and several leading industry case studies.
Candriam's SRI academy has certainly had an impact within the industry and initial feedback and data is showing that the company has captured the attention of the industry just as it had planned. So much so that Candriam plan to roll the SRI Academy out in additional country languages and add additional training modules.
