The Chartered Insurance Institute's pension planning unit has been confirmed by the Financial Services Skills Council as an appropriate exam for people acting as pensions transfer specialists.
The FSSC has added AF3 – the pension planning advanced diploma in financial planning unit – to its list of appropriate exams as meeting the full exam requirement for those carrying out pension transfers.
AF3 was introduced in October and replaced the CII’s G60 pensions exam which is no longer available following the replacement of the advanced financial planning certificate with the new advanced diploma.
It will be examined for the first time in April 2007.
