PFS extends study groups programme

The Personal Finance Society is rolling out a series of regional study groups to help its members prepare for the diploma in financial planning exams.

The study groups, which have been developed in association with Aegon Scottish Equitable, will take place in the run up to the July and October diploma sittings.

This follows a pilot of the programme in advance of the J02 trusts exam sitting this month.

Each study group will be made up of five or six two-hour sessions, followed by an optional revision day.

The programme for July exams includes ten study groups in five cities covering the JO2, JO4, and JO5 subjects.

Prior to the October sittings there is a planned programme of 14 study groups in seven cities covering JO1, JO2, JO4, JO5 and JO6.

PFS chief executive Fay Goddard says: “We introduced the study groups to encourage a more structured route to study whilst restricting capacity to ensure each attendee has the opportunity to be actively involved. This objective seems to have been met and following very good feedback from the members, we are delighted to roll out the study groups to more regions.”
