The torrent of policy reforms in the financial sector spurs interest in the private sector to fill skill gaps and provide professional training. Bruh Finance launched a certificate program to equip professionals, following the prospect of opening up the financial sector for foreign capital and introducing a capital market. Managed by Getachew Beshahwred, Bruh Finance launched capacity development training and consultancy services two months ago. Getachew has been in the consulting business since 2019. He has served domestic and international institutions for over three decades in project management, auditing, and accounting. The company has started registration to offer courses to certify trainees from financial institutions. Trainees pay over 100,000 Br for a year-long course delivered in the four conference rooms in the Hub Hotel.

The company has recently inked deals with the Ethiopian Insurers Association, an industry lobby group, to provide insurers with technical support in compliance with the Chartered Insurance Institute standards.
