1. What is the Institute’s Global Affiliate Programme?
Community and Media Channel owners that believe the Institute’s education is a valuable resource and who support our educational content and message can now benefit from helping us to spread the word globally and be part of an educational driving force that is changing the way Trading and Portfolio Management education is delivered to the Retail Trader.
Community and Media owners include Retail Brokers, Trading / Portfolio Management websites, Financial Information Providers (News & Data Vendors), Trading / Portfolio Management Educators, Magazines & other Print Media (Industry Publications), Private Trading / Portfolio Management communities, Corporates & Schools (Both Online & Offline).
2. How do I qualify for the Institute’s Global Affiliate Program?
Please note, we do not accept affiliates that have access to small communities of traders / media distribution. This is simply because it is not worth our time to set up the program for very little or no gain in growing our own community. This is also due to the fact that many people attempt to join our affiliate program for the purpose of trying to get our education for themselves. Our screening process will not allow this. The Institutes Global Affiliate Program is intended solely for registered businesses / corporates that provide turnkey sizeable distribution for the Institutes education.
3. How do I apply to become part of the Global Affiliate Program?
Before doing so please assess your own suitability.
If you believe you are suitable and once you have made your application, one of our team will assess your suitability from the information you have provided. Please provide us with as much information as you possibly can to aid us in our decision. If you are deemed a suitable candidate for the Affiliate Program we will then contact you (usually within 7 days) to schedule a call. Usually we will ask you a series of questions on email beforehand so that you can prepare the answers / resources / evidence for the call.
On application to the Affiliate Program you must include your full name, the email address you used to register at the Institute website and your full telephone number including international dialling code. This information is important to us. We require your accurate contact details because we will need to contact you by telephone and email in order to assist you in getting set up with the infrastructure and resources required to join the Global Affiliate Program.
You will also need to provide us with your company details such as name, country of incorporation, company registration number (or equivalent), company website and distribution capability. Providing all of this information to us as accurately as possible will aid your application and speed up the application process.
Applications to the Global Affiliate Program that include information that is inaccurate or incomplete will not be considered for the program.
