Each year Aviva will appoint three fellows who will become advocates for raising professional standards among members of the Financial Adviser Academy and the wider industry.
The first fellows appointed by Aviva are RSM Tenon Financial Services compliance consultant Thomasina McGuigan, Hazelwoods Financial Planning chartered financial planner Eugenie Cameron and The Financial Planning Centre IFA Tina Thackery.
Aviva says all three were top performers in diploma modules and will have the opportunity to contribute their thoughts to a white paper on issues affecting the financial adviser profession.
Aviva intermediary and partnerships director Angela Seymour-Jackson says: “The launch of the fellowship is an exciting move for Aviva. We want to recognise, celebrate and advance the careers of financial advisers across the UK – particularly the rising stars. This is just one way that we are doing this.”
