Qualifications Bulletin - November Edition
Qualifications Bulletin
Dear David
Membership no. 99071
Customer no.
341746
In this Qualifications Bulletin we focus exclusively on the Masters in Wealth Management. We provide some information about the December 2013 examination and outline some changes that have been made to the CISI Masters in Wealth Management for the June 2014 examination.

This year the overall syllabus for the programme has undergone a review to ensure that it is up to date and that the views of firms, exam panels and trainers about the content and structure of the qualification are reflected in the syllabus and study material.

Information is being provided now to allow firms, candidates and training providers to prepare for the June 2014 examination.

December 2013 Examinations
Financial Markets
There are no changes to the syllabus for Financial Markets, or the learning manual.
Portfolio Construction Theory
There is no change to the syllabus for Portfolio Construction Theory.  Some amendments have been made in the learning manual. Chapter 4 on collective investments has been rewritten and there are some changes to the elements which deal with property investment and hedge funds.

It is important to note that what is covered in each of these areas remains the same – it is just the way in which the content is written which has changed.

The chapters on taxation have been updated to reflect changes which have taken place in this area. A table of tax rates and allowances is provided in each question paper so that candidates do not need to memorise what the current rates are. A revised copy of the learning manual has been provided to all candidates and training providers.

Candidates studying from the old learning manual will not be disadvantaged in the December 2013 exam.
Applied Wealth Management
The syllabus for the December 2013 is unchanged from June 2012 except for the following alteration to Advanced Wealth Management:

Candidates are required to know that the FCA, rather than the FSA, is responsible for the areas listed in the Learning outcome 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 above.  These areas are described in the current learning manual.
June 2014 Examination
The main changes to the June 2014 examination are as follows:
  • Some tax material has come out of Portfolio Construction Theory and into Applied Wealth Management
  • Tax material remaining in Portfolio Construction Theory will now be tested in the context of the whole paper, not as a separate element as at present
  • Syllabus refreshed where necessary, for example, the regulatory regime (but note that all the regulatory material is still in Applied Wealth Management)
  • Minimal amount of additional material, mainly focusing on how material is to be tested, e.g the inclusion of a 'critical' approach to considering reports and accounts; consideration of the interactive skills needed by wealth managers
  • Overlapping material has been removed, material now only appears on place on the overall syllabus
  • Applied Wealth Management contains some new topics not present in Financial Markets or Portfolio Construction Theory (such as the regulatory material), but material from other units of the Masters may be tested in the context of Applied Wealth Management, making it a more 'management' focused, synoptic unit.
The overall content of the qualification has remained fully RDR compliant.
Transition Arrangements
Candidates who have passed one or more units under the current syllabus may progress immediately to the revised units in order to complete the qualification, e.g candidates who have passed Financial Markets will not be disadvantaged by moving on to the new version of Portfolio Construction Theory and those who have passed Financial Markets and Portfolio Construction Theory under the current syllabus will not be disadvantaged by moving on to the new version of Applied Wealth Management.

These candidates do need to be aware of the small amount of new content in units they have passed, and we therefore propose to provide the pages from the new CISI learning manuals which cover the new material. This will be provided as a composite pdf and placed on the CISI website as well as being sent out to candidates.

Candidates who fail Financial Markets, Portfolio Construction Theory or Advanced Wealth Management in December 2013, or who have deferred their exams till June 2014 will need to study from the new learning manuals and from the new syllabus if sitting in June 2014 or thereafter.

The new versions of the examinations can be examined for the first time in June 2014. New learning manuals will be available on 28 February 2014.

Certificate in InvestmentsThe CISI’s level 3 Certificate in Investments is the CISI qualification of choice for the wholesale sector of the financial services industry.

To more accurately reflect the wholesale career path, the certificate is being re-titled the Capital Markets Programme from September 2013.  

The structure of the qualification, ie a regulatory paper plus a technical unit, remains unchanged, as does the requirement for first time candidates to pass IntegrityMatters.
Withdrawal of Principles of UK Financial Regulation - Reminder
As announced earlier in the year, the CISI will now offer one level 3 regulatory paper, UK Financial Regulation, as part of its Investment Operations Certificate (IOC) and Capital Markets Programme.

Accordingly, and as previously notified, Principles of UK Financial Regulation will be withdrawn at the end of September 2013.

The CISI
Qualifications Bulletin
March 2013

Eligibility for CISI Masters in Wealth Management
Qualifications Bulletin
Dear Jamie
Masters in Wealth ManagementThe CISI Masters in Wealth Management has become the industry's flagship programme in wealth management.

Evidence suggests that those candidates who have passed a professional qualification, before they embark on the CISI in Masters in Wealth Management, are the ones most likely to succeed.  

Therefore, in consultation with key firms and the Masters in Wealth Management exam panels, the CISI has decided, to implement eligibility criteria for candidates sitting their first unit of the Masters from December 2013 (including that sitting).  

Candidates who have already booked onto a unit of the programme will not be affected by this new policy, irrespective of whether or not they have yet taken the unit.

In amending the policy, the CISI has been mindful that the qualification:

•  prepares the candidate for work at Masters level
•  is professional in nature
•  is of a financial nature

A range of qualifications are acceptable, including the following:

  1. IAD or any other RDR compliant qualification, including qualifications that are RDR-compliant with gap fill (even if the gap fill is not actually carried out)
  2. Any Level 3 benchmark qualification (ie, one including a regulatory paper and a specialist technical element)
  3. IMC Level 4 (without the need for CFA1)
  4. UK full accountancy and actuarial qualifications*
  5. MBAs/MScs in financial disciplines which have a strong investment related element, that the CISI deems relevant
  6. CFA
  7. CEFA
  8. Overseas qualifications where are recognised by the FSA, eg FINRA, SAAJ, JSDA
  9. EFPA (European Financial Planning Association)
  10. Overseas qualifications where the applicant can demonstrate that the number of study hours, the form of assessment and the content are appropriate to prepare them for study at Masters level
  11. Any financial services-related qualification (not unit) at Levels 5-7 (eg, the CISI Diploma)

*excluding AAT

Experience will not be taken into account, as its impact on the ability to undertake a high-level professional qualification cannot be quantified.

Information about how to demonstrate eligibility can be found here.

Yours sincerely

Ruth Martin

The CISI
Qualifications Bulletin
January 2013
 
In the first Qualifications Bulletin of 2013 we are covering the following:
Price Increases from April 2013
Price Increases

A modest increase of 5% will be applied to qualifications for exams to be sat after 1 April. The main changes will be:

  2012/2013 2013/2014
IAD £180 £190
IOC, excluding Regulations £100 £105
Regulations Level 3 £150 £160
Narrative Exams £225 £235
Securities/Derivatives Level 3 £180 £190


Bookings made up to midnight on 22/02/2013, for exams to be taken after 1 April 2013, will be charged at the 2012/13 fee.

Full details of fee can be found here.
Workbook and Examination Purchase: New Policy
New PolicyFollowing the Retail Distribution Review, the CISI has reviewed its arrangements for supporting exam candidates.

From 1 April, candidates booking exams will also be required to purchase CISI learning materials.

In addition to a hard copy of the workbook, candidates will also receive a free pdf.  

Candidates booking exams before 1 April 2013, to be taken after 1 April 2013, will not be affected.

The CISI is working closely with Accredited Training Providers to enable this change to be offered as cost effectively as possible.
Updating of Regulatory Examinations: Timetable
TimetableReflecting FSA changes, which come into force from April 2013, the CISI's Level 3 and 4 regulatory papers will be amended and republished, with revised titles, for first examination on 1 April 2013.

Existing versions of the FSA Regulation & Professional Integrity, FSA Financial Regulation and Principles of Financial Regulation syllabuses will be available until 30 April 2013.


Existing Syllabus New Syllabus Examinable from
FSA Regulation & Professional Integrity UK Financial Regulation & Professional Integrity 1 April 2013
FSA Financial Regulation UK Financial Regulation 1 April 2013
Principles of Financial Regulation Principles of UK Financial Regulation 1 April-30 September 2013*
Corporate Finance Regulations Corporate Finance Regulations 11 April 2013
Corporate Finance Technical Foundations Corporate Finance Technical Foundations 11 April 2013

Transitional Arrangements:

Existing Syllabus Version Available until
FSA Regulation & Professional Integrity Version 3 30 April 2013
FSA Financial Regulation Version 18 30 April 2013
Principles of Financial Regulation Version 11 30 April 2013
*Withdrawal of Principles of Financial Regulation from 30 September 2013
Principles of Financial RegulationThe rationale for offering two regulatory exams at level 3 was based on the perceived need in 2006, as we prepared for MiFID, for two curricula, one for candidates working in back office roles, and one for candidates working in front office roles.

Over the last 6 years, Principles of Financial Regulation has changed very little, but FSA Financial Regulation has been streamlined to focus on the more relevant parts of the retail client aspects.

Changes to the FSA's structure have resulted in even more alignment between FSA Financial Regulation and Principles of Financial Regulation.


In 2010 the CISI introduced the Investment Advice Diploma as its RDR-compliant qualification, including the FSA Regulation & Professional Integrity unit; this qualification is now the CISI benchmark for candidates in the retail front office, ie, those advising and dealing in Securities, Derivatives and Packaged Products.

Following consultation with the syllabus panels and the main users of the Level 3 exams, from 1 April 2013, the CISI will be offering two regulatory papers; Level 3 UK  Financial Regulation for candidates in wholesale and back office roles, who do not need to comply with the RDR, and Level 4 UK Financial Regulation & Professional Integrity for those affected by the RDR.  

Consequently, the current level 3 Principles of Financial Regulation will be retired. An updated version of Principles of UK Financial Regulation will be available from 1 April for six months, with the last examination on 30 September 2013.  The examination will then be closed.
UK Financial Regulation – Examination Length
UK Financial RegulationIn order to reflect changes to the syllabus and facilitate a fairer test of the breadth of material for this exam, the new UK Financial Regulation examination will be one hour 30 minutes in length and will comprise 75 questions.

This revised examination will be reviewed very carefully on a weekly basis for the first six months.

IntegrityMatters
IntegrityMatters

The CISI has stated its opinion that the wholesale investment and banking sector, as well as those individuals working in the retail advice sector, who are within the scope of the Retail Distribution Review, should be required to demonstrate an awareness of ethical standards.

Accordingly, with effect from 1 April 2013, all new entrants for Level 3 Certificate exams, other than Investment Operations Certificate, will be required to gain a grade A or B result in the IntegrityMatters test, as a prerequisite to sitting the exam.

As part of this proposal, the price of IntegrityMatters has been reduced to £20 for all entrants and the CISI has committed to paying the income from this stream to the CISI Educational Trust.

The Institute is keen to help training providers and firms develop suitable material for this new stream.

If you would like to discuss this further, please contact the CISI's Head of Professional Standards, Andrew Hall.
New Factsheets
New FactsheetsIn order to clarify the key features of it provision, the CISI has revised the format of its qualification factsheets.

View the new factsheet for the Diploma in Investment Compliance.

View all our new factsheets.
                       
Diploma in Investment Compliance
Diploma in Investment Compliance The CISI's highest-level compliance qualification, the Diploma in Investment Compliance (DIC), has been updated to incorporate new units in the relevant subject areas. 


Candidates muss pass Introduction to Securities & Investment in order to gain the DIC.

The award can lead to personal chartered status. An international version of the DIC, in which candidates can substitute a local regulatory paper the CISI Level 4 regulatory paper, is available.

The new DIC is available now, but candidates can still obtain the DIC under the former requirements, until December 2013.

Full details of the new DIC, its international variant and the transitional arrangements can be found here.

The new Diploma in Investment Compliance comprises of the following units:
  • Level 4 FSA Regulation & Professional Integrity (UK Financial Regulation & Professional Integrity)
  • One of:
  • Combating Financial Crime  
  Risk in Financial Services  
  Global Financial Compliance  
  • Regulation and Compliance
Level 3 Investment Management

This edition of the Qualifications Bulletin focuses on:
New Diploma in Corporate Finance
Diploma in Corporate FinanceThe new Diploma in Corporate Finance will equip you with advanced corporate finance knowledge, skills and expertise. It will enhance the value you bring to the organisations you work with and help accelerate your career.

It replaces the diploma and advanced diplomas in corporate finance previously offered by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

This programme is jointly awarded by the CISI and ICAEW. Approved by Ofqual, recognition from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is currently being sought.

Retail Distribution Review (RDR) Deadlines
RDRIf you are an adviser authorised by the FSA prior to 30 June 2009 and you do not meet the qualifications/SPS requirements by the end of the 2012 RDR deadline, then you will not be able to continue advising retail clients (even under supervision) from 1 January 2013.  

You can only start advising retail clients again when you have gained your SPS.

 Qualifications Bulletin - April 2012   
   In this edition of the Qualifications Bulletin we focus on the changes to our examinations to help you plan ahead.  Many of the recipients of the Qualifications Bulletin will also receive the RDR Bulletin, but we are taking this opportunity to draw your attention to the latest round of RDR roadshows, designed to assist firms and individuals as the RDR deadline draws nearer. I look forward to seeing many of you as we travel around the country.
 
RDR Roadshows
PCIAM Sittings
Level 3 Investment & Risk
Other Examination Changes
Become a CISI external specialist 

RDR Roadshows

With the deadline for retail investment advisers to comply with the RDR less than nine months away, the CISI is again offering a series of roadshows across the UK during April and May 2012.

These events are designed to help firms, practitioners, CISI members and exam candidates to comply fully with the RDR and meet the FSA’s requirements and will focus on what you need to do to apply for a Statement of Professional Standing and how to maintain CPD in the new regime.

Further details can be found here.


PCIAM Sittings

There are two remaining sittings of PCIAM available for candidates who need to be RDR compliant by the end of 2012.  They are on Thursday 12 July (closing date Monday 21 May) and Tuesday 11 September (closing date Monday 23 July). 

PCIAM will continue to be offered after those dates for those not affected by the 2012 RDR deadline. Exams will take place in December 2012, and March/April, June, September and December 2013. Further details can be found
here.



Level 3 Investment & Risk

Because the RDR requires all those who offer advice to clients to have gained qualifications which are of at least the level 4 benchmark standard by the end of the 2012, candidates and firms have been switching from Level 3 Investment & Risk to the RDR-compliant Level 4 Investment, Risk & Taxation exam.

Therefore from 31 December 2012 we will cease to offer the Level 3 exam
.



Other Examination Changes

The CREST Settlement unit of the Investment Operations Certificate (IOC) will also no longer be offered by the CISI as the level of interest from the industry does not justify continuing to offer it. Candidates will be able to take the exam until 31 December 2012.

Candidates and training providers are reminded that at least three months' study time is recommended for each exam.

As notified in the Qualifications Bulletin of April 2011, the Diploma units Investment Analysis and Interpretation of Financial Statements will be examined for the last time in June 2012. 

Following the release of results for these subjects in August 2012, exemptions will no longer be granted against these two units.
