To achieve the Fellowship grade, individuals would be required to have 10 AFPC (Diploma) units or equivalent. This shows a commitment to continuous professional development.

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.

This examination enhanced general pension knowledge, particularly in pension transfers and opt-out business.

This qualification assesses a knowledge and understanding of the UK regulation environment in the financial services industry, lifetime mortgage products, repayment options and the giving of mortgage advice.

Fellow members will have passed the Institute’s fellowship examinations and have demonstrated five years relevant experience.

This examination assesses a knowledge and understanding of investment products and the risks involved.

This qualification assesses a knowledge and understanding of the UK regulation environment in the financial services industry, long term care insurance products and the giving of long term care insurance advice.

This qualification is a specialist qualification which demonstrates a knowledge and understanding of Financial Markets, Portfolio Construction Theory and Applied Wealth Management.

An internationally recognised financial planning credential. The holder must demonstrate a combination of experience, financial qualifications (usually AFPC/DipPFS) or equivalent, an CISI assessment, ongoing educational activity (continuous professional development) and ethical behaviour.

What our clients say
Carl is very thorough & explains everything clearly, providing all the necessary information regarding very complicated financial matters. His knowledge & approach reinforces your trust & when you have very little experience in these matters you need the right information & a person you can trust.

Helped by completing a full financial analysis Plan which covered our current financial position, and options going forward with sound advice on everything from pensions to savings/investments, to provide us with a robust financial platform to guide us on our way to a secure and happy retirement!
Alan Beattie, Bridge of Weir
Carl provided me with a detailed financial plan which showed the outcomes based on various scenarios. He is clearly very knowledgable and explained everything in easy to understand language . The plan has allowed me to have a good level of confidence in terms of my future financial affairs - it feels very re-assuring.
