Succession is requiring its financial planners to become level 6 qualified in the next 24 months.
The firm has committed £50,000 to support the 60 advisers in its wealth management business to take the qualification.
It has partnered with the Institute of Financial Planning to develop a support programme.
Succession says that when it looks to acquire new advice firms, it will also require them to take the level 6 qualification once they have joined the group.
Succession Group chief executive Simon Chamberlain says: “All our members are on board with this change. In an independent market place, firms have to fit with that culturally, and that means continuing to develop their qualifications.”
