I am an experienced QA working in London for the past 7 years. I have ISEB Practitioner certificate in Test Management. Have got good experience with Web / Mobile / Client-Server applications in both manual and automation testing. I have experience in domains like e-commerce, healthcare, pharma. But I never got a chance to work in Finance / Banking domain.

In all these years of my experience in London, I've found that the preference is given to the domain knowledge.
I am looking to gain experience in Banking / Finance sector and before I do that, I would like to know if there are any courses or Certifications that I can do. My idea is get the theoritical knowledge and then try to find a QA position in Banking / Finance industry relevant to my knowledge and gain experience from there.

These are the areas I am highly interested in: Credit Risk , Insurance, Investment banking, Capital Markets and any tools which are widely used in Banking / Finance sector.

Any ideas / thoughts / suggestions are most welcome.
