The CFA Society Sri Lanka is to unveil its virtual course on ‘Enhancing Investment Management with Python and Machine Learning’ in collaboration with Acuity Knowledge Partners, commencing from Tuesday, September 28, 2021. 


Commenting about the launch of this virtual course, CFA Society Sri Lanka President Dinesh Warusavitharana CFA said, “Technology has already transformed many industries, from the medical to the automotive. However, its adoption in investment management so far has been limited and we believed machine learning can transform the way investment strategies are administered by all types of managers, who will have a greater potential to drive investment decisions. We are thankful to Chanakya and the team at Acuity Knowledge Partners, who collaborated with us to offer this programme exclusively to CFA members and candidates in Sri Lanka.” 


Acuity Knowledge Partners County Director Chanakya Dissanayake CFA added, “As a leading provider of bespoke research, analytics, staffing and technology solutions to the financial services sector that was recently announced Best Outsourcing Service Provider to Capital Markets in 2021 Waters Rankings, we are proud of our training partnership with CFA Society Sri Lanka.”


He further stated that machine learning usage is on the rise. Investors are also increasingly using big data, AI and machine learning to inform asset allocation and investment decision-making and funds are beginning to incorporate machine learning into ESG analysis and measuring impact. In this context, the course will help investment professionals to upskill to strive higher for excellence. 


The objective of the course would be to enable financial analysts to get an intuitive understanding into key data science aspects, experiment with them and explore how they can be applied in real-world applications and the course would cover basic understanding of using python for analytics, refreshment and practical application of statistics, practical portfolio optimisation in python and understanding and implementing basic machine learning in python.


The distinguished panel of lecturers from Acuity Knowledge Partners has substantial programming and data science credentials and are equipped to offer exclusive insight into the modules set forth. Assistant Director Gamika Seneviratne CFA, Senior Associate Sanjeth Srikathirkamanathan, Associate Sajidh Ahamed, Delivery Manager Krishantha Dharmasiri, Analyst Beshani Weralupitiya and Analyst Flora Muthukumarasamy, constitute the panel of experts to deliver the course.
