Today sees the online launch of the third in Professional Adviser's series of structured CPD articles tailored to meet your RDR gap-fill requirements.
Today's article is on understanding the main asset classes.
Written by Geoff Mills, director at Rayner Spencer Mills, the article has been read and verified by both the Institute of Financial Planning (IFP) and the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) as meeting the RDR learning outcomes set by the FSSC (now Financial Skills Partnership) and agreed by the FSA.
IFP learning gaps covered: 76-92, plus 94
CII learning gaps covered: 30-33
Advisers who currently hold a QCF Level 4 approved qualification must map their exam syllabus against the learning outcomes set by the FSSC to see if and where they have any 'knowledge gaps'.
Once all advisers can prove they have covered all the learning outcomes (either through their existing qualifications, new exams or via gap fill activity such as by reading our articles) they will be 'RDR-compliant'.
What do I need to do?
If you have any knowledge gaps in the area of 'understanding the main asset classes, read and learn this article.
Then you will need to tackle a short online test. The test contains eight multiple-choice questions.
Once you have passed it, you can download a certificate for your records and confidently tick off the learning outcomes in your gap list.
THIS ARTICLE IS THE THIRD IN A SERIES OF RDR GAP-FILL ARTICLES BY PROFESSIONAL ADVISER MAGAZINE AND IFAONLINE.CO.UK
