FC course
  • Initiation
              Provident fund committees play crucial roles in managing provident funds for members’ best interest. Thus, the understanding and knowledge of provident fund management is essential. FC courses were initiated when the office of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) realizes that the fund committee can truly assure members that they will have better life after retirement only through effective fund management.
  • Cooperation
              The SEC has cooperated with three professional organizations – the Association of Investment Management Companies (AIMC), the Association of Provident Funds (AOP), and the Thailand Securities Institute (TSI) – that have common interest in uplifting the fund management standard among provident fund committees. Cooperation led to the development of “FC Fundamental Course” and “FC Advance Course” aiming to educate provident fund committees about their roles and responsibilities in the provident fund management.
