Incapital Europe says 1,500 wealth managers and financial advisers have signed up to its nationwide structured product masterclasses just two weeks after it announced the scheme.
The group says 70 per cent of registered attendees have declared themselves supportive of structured products, while 30 per cent are sceptical.
It says the unbiased training cla-sses, developed with input from the Institute of Financial Planning, are the “most comprehensive educational programme ever under-taken” in the UK. The programme started on Monday, October 18 in Newmarket and continues to London on November 5, finishing with an IFA debate on November 10.
The group says it has capacity for another 1,000 advisers, who can find details on its website.
Incapital Europe managing director Chris Taylor says: “We have developed a landmark industry event that will potentially change the way the professional adviser community views, understands, reacts to and utilises structured investments, with the key theme being that it’s just as much about advice as it is about structured investments.
”The two-and-a-half-hour classes are free for advisers. As well as Taylor, the lecturers are James Chu and Mark Dickson.
