Competent Adviser

Competent Adviser

The FCA’s requirement that advisers undertake 21 hours of structured CPD means it’s essential that firms have support in managing their responsibilities. The CPD Portal allows firms to set a supervisor to assign reading and testing to manage the development of your staff on an ongoing basis. Advisers can easily export test results to support their Statement of Professional Standing.

Testimonials

“Just a quick note to say how amazed I have been at the calibre of your team at SimplyBiz. Since I signed up with you, they have been outstanding in every area. Prior to joining, I really did not trust a single individual in this industry but the facts are that SimplyBiz have delivered far more than they promised and come across as sincere and genuine. It really has been refreshing to work with people who are experienced and capable of running beyond the tape”
