Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We would like to inform you that the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg has set up an advanced training programme for professionals from the alternative investment sector. The BAI acts as a cooperation partner in this program. More information can be found under the following link:

The program starts in October 2019 and deals exclusively with current practice-relevant topics for alternative asset classes such as private equity, private debt, infrastructure and real estate. The range of topics covers the fundamental characteristics of alternative investments and includes regulatory capital requirements (Basel, Solvency II, Solvency I / VAG), investment and risk management methods including sustainability risks (ESG) and valuation as well as standard investment structures such as funds or securitisations. Course participants will be given a general and up-to-date overview of alternative investments as well as an in-depth look at a specific topic in the context of their homework and presentation.

The participants can combine 2 AI modules into a CAS AI (Certificate of Advanced Studies Alternative Investments) or 5 modules into a DAS AI (Diploma of Advanced Studies Alternative Investments). All modules are also available as part of the MSc. Risk Management for Financial Service Providers. CAS AI and DAS AI are globally recognized continuing education titles awarded by the public University of Oldenburg. The tuition fees are EUR 900 per module and EUR 120 per semester. The CAS AI can thus be completed for around 2,000 EUR tuition fees in approx. 10 months of study time.

All modules are compatible with a 100% professional activity and are divided into 2 presence weekends (Friday afternoon - Saturday afternoon) at the University of Oldenburg and approx. 5 months online phase including active forum discussion. The small groups with up to 20 participants from the financial sector also offer an opportunity for networking and professional exchange among colleagues. Both AI modules will be designed and taught by Mr. Jegor Tokarevich, CEO of SOF (Substance Over Form Ltd.). If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Tokarevich at or Ms. Silke Welter (+49(0)441 798-3244,

We look forward to this new training opportunity, which will make a significant contribution to the promotion of alternative investments.

Kind regards,

Rolands Brooks
