Oct 31 , 2022


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. Bruh Finance was incorporated with over 200,000 Br capital; it has enlisted 18 trainers in finance, including heads of banks and insurance firms. It partnered with international institutions such as the Chartered Insurance Institute, GB & Co Chartered Accountants, the London Institute of Banking & Finance, and CISI Education Partners. 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.
