Bankhall Investment Associates Ltd has become the latest company to sign up to the ifs School of Finance and is now able to offer its members the ifs Diploma for Financial Advisers (DipFA).
The company is one of the largest suppliers of support services to financial advisers in the UK, with some 2,500 member firms comprising of more than 8,000 advisers.
Gary Millner, director of financial regulation at the ifs School of Finance says Bankhall's commitment to DipFA is another tremendous mark of how strongly the market values the new qualification.
Meanwhile, David Golder, Bankhall's managing director IFA Services says, "Whilst Bankhall has always maintained an active programme of education for Advisers through the Knowledge Forum it is clear that the demands of the RDR bring a greater focus on qualifications. We are therefore delighted to announce that our first strategic relationship in this field is with the ifs School of Finance - whose DipFA we have a high regard for."IFAonline
