ICICI Securities Ltd has announced the launch of a new platform for investor education — E-Learn. Programmes of the new platform are hosted on a cloud-based learning management system.

This system helps learners to track their progress and do a self-assessment on a regular basis.

E-Learn uses animations, real market case studies and simple language to make the learning a lasting experience, said a release from the securities firm.

“Lack of knowledge about investing is one of the biggest impediments for entering into the stock markets,” said Vineet Arora, EVP and Head of Product & Distribution.

“E-Learn is aimed at giving an easy access to investing knowledge to all learners interested in the Indian equity markets.”

‘Gateway to Stock Investing’ and ‘Gateway to Futures & Options’ are the two programmes currently available under E-Learn.

Gateway to Stock Investing program is designed for beginners in the stock markets and deals with basic investing concepts, helps learners understand the process of stock selection and avoid common mistakes made in investing.

Gateway to Futures & Options is for investors who want to initiate their trading in derivatives.

The firm also added that these programmes are open to even those who are not customers of ICICIdirect.
