This professional qualification meets the FCA’s requirements for developing core technical knowledge and financial planning capabilities across six core, modular areas:

Financial Services, Regulation and Ethics

Investment Principles
and Risk

Personal Taxation

Pensions and
Retirement Planning

Financial Protection

Financial Planning Practice

You need to pass all six modules to become a fully qualified Financial Planner and you will have attained DipPFS.

You may be eligible to claim exemptions for relevant exams and qualifications obtained through other professional bodies or universities. Subject to the published qualification completion requirements these can be used to help you achieve CII qualifications more quickly.

 

Building your career

The Diploma will assist you and demonstrates your commitment to learning and development. Because its modular you can work the qualification around your personal circumstances.

Upon completion you can apply to use the DipPFS, so your clients know they are dealing with a proven and competent professional. Through Continued Professional Development (CPD) you will continue your technical and professional development so your knowledge and the advice you give to clients remains current.

If you want to develop yourself further you can work towards higher level professional qualification such as ‘Chartered Financial Planner’.

We’re here to support you every step of the way.
