As the Retail Distribution Review looms over the retail finance industry demanding advisers demonstrate new levels of professionalism, Incisive Media - the publisher of IFAonline - has joined forces with JPMorgan to offer a free educational tool aimed at advisers.
The Adviser Academy powered by JPMorgan is available online and will feature a range of educational sessions, which will be updated weekly.
Each week a new training module will be available through the site, featuring a combination of video, audio and text content that will provide a thorough briefing on topics such as behavioural finance and the psychology of investing as well as the nuts and bolts of the investment markets.
The modules will not only enhance advisers’ understanding of the investment arena, but also help them better understand their clients so they can tailor advice to their particular needs.
At the same time, features to accompany each module will run in IFAonline’s sister publications Professional Adviser and Investment Week.
The online presentation accompanying each feature will last for approximately 15 minutes and advisers will earn CPD points for each module completed. A personalised certificate can be downloaded and printed as soon as the module is done.
All content is completely free once users complete a very simple registration process. For further details, click here.IFAonline
