We know our stuff

And here’s the proof. We go above and beyond the minimum standards required by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and are continually developing our financial planning skills. The way we see it, the more we continue to learn, the better we can advise and steer you on your financial journey.

  • Certified Financial Planner

    James also holds the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) certification, awarded by the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI).

    It’s the only globally recognised mark of excellence in financial planning and awarded to financial advisers at the pinnacle of the profession, who’ve completed a detailed assessment of their skills and knowledge and demonstrated that they’ve got the right experience, education and ethical approach.

    Less than 2% of financial advisers in the UK have achieved this designation.

  • Chartered Financial Planner

    Kat holds what is widely accepted to be the ‘gold standard’ qualification for UK professional financial planners and advisers. By definition, holders of this status are among the most experienced and most qualified advisers in the profession.

  • Diploma in Financial Services (CII)

    Chris holds this qualification from the CII, which develops advanced technical knowledge and understanding across a broad range of key advisory areas.

  • Diploma for Financial Advisers

    James holds the LIBF diploma for financial advisers. This is an industry benchmark qualification for financial advisers, which meets the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) qualification requirement for retail investment advisers. Highly relevant and practical, the qualification is tailored to reflect the Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) role.

  • CeMAP

    James holds the CeMAP qualification which is a Level 3 qualification registered with Ofqual in the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). It meets the FCA examination standards for providing advice on mortgage products and is an approved qualification in the mortgage advice apprenticeship standards.
