Quilter Financial Adviser School hits double landmark in supporting advice
April 2019 has been a significant month in the achievements of the Quilter Financial Adviser School – hitting its three-year anniversary and passing the 200 mark in students who have achieved a certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) or a Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA).
The school was relaunched in April 2016, having become part of the Old Mutual Wealth group of companies, now named Quilter. Since then more than 300 students have joined the not-for-profit school, with an average age of 29 and with a third of them female.
As well as CeMAP and DipFA, the school also now offers a level six programme with the LIBF. Another Quilter business, the advice network Intrinsic, provided a further boost to the school by funding a training programme for students to become restricted financial planners within its network, and remain for two years once they have qualified.
Darren Smith, Head of the Quilter Financial Adviser School says, ‘Gaining a certificate in mortgage or financial advice can be the first step on the road to a lifelong vocation, or an opportunity for someone to start afresh in a new profession. It’s therefore really pleasing to reach the milestone of 200 graduates and to know that we are able to support firms in their growth or succession plans.’
