Meanwhile, Chartered Financial Planner, Nick Evans has completed his Personal Finance Society Chartered Fellowship qualification.  This is the highest level of qualification available from the UK’s largest professional body for financial planners and demonstrates an outstanding commitment to attaining professional qualifications and technical competence.

In addition two more of our team have taken a further step towards Chartered Financial Planner status with Helen Thomas successfully completing the AF5 qualification in Financial Planning and Will Carter achieving the AF4 qualification in Investment Planning.

To support the team FPC have engaged Adam Owen, who is currently Vice President of The Personal Finance Society. Adam has worked with some of the UK’s largest financial institutions as well as regulators in the UK and Isle of Man during his 25 year career in financial services and he is particularly focused on professional development and consumer protection.

Speaking about the engagement, Adam said, “These days, time allows me to work with only a small number of firms, so I am delighted to have this opportunity to support a great company like FPC who are committed to the professional development of their team.”
