Nearly half of advisers want more information on how regulation of protection sales will affect them from January 2005 and how they should prepare, according to a survey by Abbey for intermediaries.
Abbey's survey shows that 49 per cent of advisers want more information on protection regulation.
The firm is offering intermediaries a free online coaching session providing guidance on regulation, decision roadmaps and tips for intermediaries.
It will also focus on three key areas – the difference between non-regulated and regulated protection sales, the role of the Financial Ombudsman Service and principles of business.
The course, which is available on Abbey's website, forms part of Scottish Provident's virtual classroom for IFAs.
