CII initiative earns PFS backing
The Chartered Insurance Institute’s ‘discover fortunes’ initiative has won the backing of more than 100 Personal Finance Society members less than six months after launching.
The ‘discover fortunes’ activity is designed to inspire students to consider a career in financial planning and give greater understanding to the range of opportunities that exist.
Caspar Bartington, relationship manager of education for the CII, said: “For the discover fortunes campaign to have gained such phenomenal support in its first six months is something of a coup for the CII.
“We are now starting to see advisers deliver discover fortunes sessions autonomously in their local communities.
“It is important for employers and the sector as a whole to attract high calibre recruits, and offering work experience and employment opportunities can be a cost effective platform for this.”
