Highlights from Financial Planning Week 2016

From 6 - 10 June 2016, the CISI facilitated Financial Planning Week 2016, a national initiative to bring financial planning to the consumer forefront. The aim of the initiative, across five days, was to raise awareness of the importance of the role of qualified financial planners in helping people from all walks of life, not just the wealthy, and of all ages, to think ahead and plan for their futures. The week unified Chartered Wealth Managers, CFPTM professionals, financial planners, media and consumers in a bid to improve the financial fitness of the British public.

  • Over 50 firms offered consultation surgeries, providing access to financial planning experts in person, via Skype or over the phone
  • 200 ask a planner questions were submitted on our ‘Ask a planner’ feature on our consumer site, Wayfinder
  • Over 50 bookings for “Money Talks” Cass Business School event for millennials and students
  • 500 telephone calls from consumers interested in attending Financial Planning Week
  • And more!
We, as a firm, thoroughly enjoyed being involved in FPW.  We met and spoke to a range of people, the most rewarding being younger people or people of lesser means. It allowed us to sharpen our tools to communicate the important financial planning basics to people who might not normally have access to advice. We developed a handout to take away of '10 Top Financial Planning Tip's which went down well.

Our aim is to help the UK public draw up their own, personal, financial master plan, incorporating all of life’s milestones, whether that be preparing for retirement, buying a home, being newly-wed, or starting a business. This is something everyone can benefit from, not just the wealthy.
