Towry Law has welcomed the first intake of professionals into its wealth adviser development programme.
The participants have begun studying for the CII’s certificate in financial planning, which is to be achieved over the next three months through Towry Law’s masters programme.
Towry Law says the scheme aims to diversify the recruitment of wealth advisers away from the existing IFA pool and draw on the potential among those who have are looking to forge a new professional ser vices career path.
Towry Law’s chief executive Andrew Fisher says: “We are delighted to welcome the inaugural return-to-work employees on to our wealth adviser development programme; individuals who, for one reason or another, had chosen to take a career break but who bring with them a wealth of talent and experience. The new recruits have over 50 years’ experience between them in careers ranging from journalism, law and finance.
“The recruitment of wealth advisers has traditionally been very narrowly cast and from a talent pool that is, frankly, pre-tty limited. Return-to-work is an industry leading initiative and offers individuals the chance to build a professional career path within Towry Law for the benefit to us, our clients and the industry as a whole. We were delighted by the calibre of applicants and look forward to guiding the new recruits through their professional training via the Towry Law’s masters programme.”
