Angus Mackenzie Dip PFS
Financial Planner

This examination assesses a knowledge and understanding of the Government’s simplified pension taxation regime which came into full effect on 6 April 2006 (A-Day). Eight tax regimes for pensions were reduced to one, radically affecting planning and transactions.

In order to have completed this qualification, individuals were required to obtain three units. These could have been selected from any combination of the available units at that time but must have included the compulsory G10 unit - Taxation and Trusts.

To achieve DipPFS individuals must achieve 140 credits. At least 80 credits must be at Diploma or AFPC level.

This examination assessed a knowledge and understanding of investments and an ability to advise individual clients on the construction of investment portfolios to meet both their current and foreseeable future needs.

This AFPC module provided an advanced knowledge of life and health protection. The October 2004 examination qualified the individual to advise on long-term care insurance.

What our clients say
Thank you for your time and patience earlier today. Money frightens me and, as I said, whatever mathematical logic I may have completely deserts me when I am under stress. Your awareness of the psychological aspects of money matters, that you so openly express, reassures me greatly.
Dr T P., London
I am very happy with the advice and service I have received and feel that it has provided me with the best solution at the present time.
Miss B M., Selborne, Hants
Angus has brought real rigour and insight to his work with me, and I have come to appreciate and trust his judgement.
Mr J M., North London
Angus has been looking after me for longer than I can remember. He listens, and by keeping track of my complicated business and lifestyle, provides advice with patience and understanding. The patience is important. I don’t keep track of the ever-changing legislation, he does. And takes me through the bits I need to know, time and again, without complaint. Where necessary he liaises with my other advisors to save me the trouble of being an intermediary. What he hasn’t been able to do is protect me from his industry’s love of paper and process. But he tries. Did I mention trust? Angus is outstanding in any company but it has been nice to find that his colleagues, including Acumen founder Sandy Robertson, all have the same ‘feel’."
