Sandringham Financial Partners, the national advisory business, has signed up as a partner of the New Model Business Academy (NMBA) to invest in not-for-profit training and development.
Sandingham has entered into the partnership in order to support the NMBA to help assist financial advisers, including those partners of Sandringham.
Lee Travis, chief exectuive of NMBA, said: "Because we are not-for-profit, our offering is dependent on the funding support we receive, and the fact that Sandringham has been willing to invest in our services at this early stage of their existence shows their commitment to invest in their partners' long term futures as well as the profession as a whole."
Steve Braidford, managing director of Sandringham Financial Partners, said: "We are very pleased to partner with the NMBA and to be able to help to fund this important not-for-profit organisation, which provides such excellent services to advisers across the UK.
"As a new national advisory we understand the great work and support the NMBA presents to the UK intermediary market and we are very proud to be able to be a part of this."
Travis continued: "The start of 2013 marked a big change as the implementation of the RDR came into force.
"With these changes, advisers and businesses are looking at more ways to develop and improve their services to clients and the NMBA is there to help them through this process and support their continuing professional development needs."
