By the end of July enrolments for the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) Pensions Update Programme had passed well over 2,500 - just three months after it was launched - two thirds of which were authorised advisers holding a CII Statement of Professional Standing. The exam-backed continuing professional development (CPD) programme keeps advisers, paraplanners and those in related roles up to speed with new pension freedoms. Crucially, it develops understanding of how these changes impact at-retirement advice. The programme's popularity is perhaps unsurprising given the new pensions minister's commitment to the new reforms and the programme's ongoing update service, giving enrolees access to online study text updates.

Professional advisers should not fear the pension reforms »
Pensions expert (now Pensions Minister) Dr Ros Altmann discusses the opportunity the pension reforms present to the advice sector be able to demonstrate, to consumers, the value of financial advice. The freedoms were designed to ensure all pension savers, whether their funds are large or small, have the same freedoms and flexibility. But the new rules do mean there are new risks that pension savers will need to understand and consider.
