National IFA Perspective Financial has announced another of its firms has attained chartered status.
Surrey-based Financial Connection Wealth Management was accredited by the CII following its acquisition by Perspective in April.
Financial Connection becomes the fifth Perspective office to hold chartered status, following on from Rutherford Wilkinson, Leedham Independent Financial Advisers, Harrogate Financial Solutions and Platinum Portfolios.
Julie Hepworth (pictured), Perspective's group regulatory manager, said the firm would continue to push for more of its offices to attain chartered status.
"We continue to work with all our offices to help them achieve chartered status and it is particularly rewarding to see a relative newcomer to the Perspective Group achieving this," she said.
"In the post-RDR environment clients will demand the very highest standards from their advisers and therefore, in our mind, the ultimate goal for each firm should be chartered status.
"It clearly informs clients they can expect the highest quality advice and service."
