Python for Data Analytics & Quants offers Bank a winning advantage
Our customer is a multinational universal bank and financial services holding company. Covering the key banking verticals of Commercial, Investment and Corporate, with a global presence and over 150,000 employees this bank believed early in 2020 that tailored automation, AI & Machine Learning support, data analytics and data driven decision engineered by an individual locally at their desktop would quickly and efficiently show a return on any investment. The success of the initial pilot has led to an on-going programme of work extended across multiple sectors, geographies and roles.
JBI was retained to devise and implement a Python based programme that would make Analytics and Machine Learning skills accessible to traders, analysts, sales, senior managers & IT.
The intention was to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of its employees through.
A flexible Solution for demanding Audience.
It was clear from the outset that training blocks of consecutive days would not suffice. The audience for this was time-poor and distributed across multiple geographies. The client required short sharp sessions that taught the concepts and illustrated the application through hands on labs and then released the attendees back to their work.
JBI offered a series of 3.5hr training session scheduled in advance in co-operation with L&D and department heads. Where required this was offered as either virtual, hybrid or in-person led by an Instructor.
3 distinct learning pathways came to be defined.
Profile 1: Senior Managers & Sales
Description: No coding experience, unlikely to be a heavy user of code. Goals are for attendees to understand the basics and be aware of the advantages and limitations of the use of coding. The typical attendee would be senior managers or sales roles.

The flexibility of the programme has served roles as diverse as "Head of Stock Exotics", "Senior Training Officer" & "IT Team Leader". With over 300 delegates trained JBI and this customer look forward to the next iteration of this programme and harnessing the opportunitites that AI & ML can offer the financial sector.
