Entering the challenging private equity industry and prospering in it as a professional at the highest level demands two key things - one, knowing how to measure, analyze and evaluate environments, scenarios, threats and opportunities; and two, the confidence that you can take optimal decisions and make profitable, risk-weighed judgements.
The powerfully simple 3-spoke IFIS™ PE Standards framework as been designed to assure excellence in PE practice for professionals. It serves as the world’s most advanced of its kind yet for professionals and aspirants to build and validate along, their professional competence and readiness for the private equity industry. Becoming even more prepared for the most advanced of the PE practice contexts and environments we may have today, is essential, and the IFIS™ standards help do just that. The USPEC IFIS™ enunciates 22 areas across which USPEC divides private equity knowledge as excellence-essential for professionals engaged in the practice of PE.
The USPEC IFIS™ (Industry-Firmographic-Investment Science) standards model spells out knowledge standards across these three dimensions – the knowledge spokes - for professionals who work on, or will work in assignments and roles that require them to study, design and execute investment decisions related to acquiring equity of target companies through methods other than stock markets. All credentials of USPEC are based on exams compliant to the IFIS™ PE Practice Standards.
The USPEC Body of PE Knowledge that defines the mechanism of credentialing for the two USPEC certifications is fleshed around the IFIS™ PE knowledge model. Called the IFIS™ Body of Knowledge, this also enunciates the structure, content and policies of the USPEC certification exams, which can be taken in Pearson test centers around the world.
The IFIS™ grid encapsulates 22 themes of critical attention and learning, split across the 3 IFIS™ knowledge-spokes, i.e., Industry knowledge - Firmographic knowledge - Investment Science knowledge - making it very convenient for recruiters and professionals – both - to understand the knowledge they should be looking for in PE jobs. That is exactly why, the IFIS™-based credentials of USPEC become a highly effective recruitment- and mobility- decider tools for organizations. The USPEC PE Studyware – the kit for exam preparation – too, has been written in accordance to the stipulations of the IFIS™ Body of Knowledge. It is given free to every individual registered for a certification of USPEC.EXPLORE PRIVATE EQUITY CREDENTIALS BY USPEC
