A further look at the National Qualifications and Standards Framework (shown below) for the financial services sector reveals that the investment advice is designed to sit squarely at the centre of the new examinations regime.
While all other sectors of the industry have yet to begin formation of a new training system, financial advice fits into levels 2,3, 4 and 5 of the Skills Council national standard of qualifications.
Knowledge in these categories is expected to cover asset management, advice, and risk management, as well as occasionally covering specialist knowledge about the markets.
