Educational Values

Trading the financial markets successfully whilst using an efficient trading strategy with exceptional risk management is not something that can be learned very quickly. This process takes weeks and a vast amount of experience and knowledge. This is why at TRINTEL we are devoted to making sure that all our students and alumni’s are provided with the best financial education and continued mentoring in order to ensure trading success.

In order to help all our students grow and progress through their careers we have partnered with Knightsbridge Trading Academy to provide an accredited qualification in Investments and Securities. Our aim is to provide all our students with quality education in order to achieve your desired qualification. The Advanced Trading & Investing Programme has been developed by London Stock Exchange Group Academy and Knightsbridge Trading Academy.

Our partnership has given us access to a formidable academic team of lecturers and mentors to provide aspiring traders with knowledge they require to build a successful trading and investing career.
