The facility includes 22 trading stations that are fully equipped with market tools and simulation software tools. In order to provide cutting-edge training expertise and technology, BIBF has partnered with specialist training and technology solution providers in the UK, Europe and US to deliver these courses. Our partners have a successful track record of providing training to leading global banks, including JPMorgan, Citigroup, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Barclays Capital & Deutsche Bank.

The BIBF and Bahrain Bourse (BHB) recently created an “Investment Academy” to promote trading skills among school leavers, graduates, employees of the financial services sector and members of the public to educate on trading in equities, commodities and FX. This is in line with the joint goal to promote knowledge and skills to encourage wider participation in the local capital market.
