The Personal Finance Society (PFS) has announced it will be holding a series of country-wide, half-day technical seminars on pensions planning pre and post A-Day, between October and December.
The course will look at the opportunities to advising clients in the run up to 6 April and immediately afterwards. Course tutor Mike Morrison, pensions strategy manager at Winterthur, will lead advisers through investment opportunities pre and post A-Day, retirement planning, business planning opportunities and transitional arrangements. The detailed context of the course will be determined by the latest state of legislation.
The PFS will also be holding a series of technical seminars covering everything from advising in the older client market, investing in commercial property, IHT and the corporate market to building a fee-based practice, compliance and AFPC revision. The seminars are divided into three levels - basic, intermediate and advanced.
The basic course is aimed at advisers relatively new to the area of practice and who want to develop their technical skill and knowledge in that area. The intermediate course would suit advisers wanting to update knowledge in a specific topic area at AFPC level, say the PFS. Meanwhile the advanced course is aimed at those advisers who have reached AFPC and also specialise in the particular area covered by the seminar.
Half day technical seminars are £95 for members and £135 for non members. Full days cost £130 for members and £170 for non members.
To obtain further information advisers should log onto the PFS website.
