Bankhall runs workshops for Pru sales staff

Bankhall is running a series of workshops in June around the UK for Prudential salespeople who are members of the Manufacturing, Scientific and Finance Union to encourage them to set-up as IFAs and join Bankhall.

To generate interest in the workshops MSF has circulated a letter stating the view that while the Pru&#39s deal with Inter-Alliance “may be beneficial to certain individuals it will not be right for all.”

MSF says the workshops will give a balanced view of the range of opportunities available to the sales people.
