The benefits of CPD
Completing the annual 35 hours of CPD is a display of commitment to individuals’ roles and their wider profession. Members are therefore awarded a certificate on completion of each CPD year. This certificate, alongside their personal CPD record, is tangible evidence of a dedication to ongoing professionalism.
Completion of full CPD years also provides members with many opportunities. Alongside the correct qualification, it allows members to apply for a Statement of Professional Standing – necessary for all practising retail investment advisers regulated by the FCA, and, alongside other criteria, enables members to apply for an individual charter.
