AWD signs up to new CII programme

AWD is the first organisation to sign up to the CIIs new pensions simplification update programme.
The new CII programme was launched in February and is designed to help advisers better understand the new pensions tax regime post A-day.
AWD is committing 350 advisers and support staff to the programme.
AWD managing Director Chris Isard says: “It is essential that our advisers demonstrate their competence well in advance of A-day and the CIIs programme is a key step in AWDs ongoing commitment to fulfil client expectations.”
CII business development manager Roger Nelson says: “AWD has set the standard by adopting this programme and we hope others will also rise to the challenge.”

FSA putting the brakes on VCTs

The FSA’s decision to issue guidance to advisers on the sale of VCTs has been met with an indifferent, if not indignant, reaction both from IFAs and product providers.

The PFS View

A few PFS members have become quite heated as a result of views we have expressed on the publication of the ABI paper, Financial Advice: How Should We Pay For It? I suspect their reaction is motivated more by fear of loss of income than the desire to come up with an equitable solution which improves confidence in the financial advice sector.

Positive thinking

It is often said that advisers are reluctant to use new technology. Anybody who makes such a statement has never met Positive Solutions.
