Award in Financial Planning (non-UK)

The learning benchmark for advisers across the global market place

Designed for financial advisers and insurance agents working outside the UK, the Award provides a solid grounding in the core financial and life assurance products. It offers guidance on what constitutes professional practice, providing a framework for ethical behaviour.

With over 6,500 holders to date across 80 countries, the Award in Financial Planning provides a professional benchmark for the sector.

The Award is suitable for anyone working outside the UK in the insurance and financial services sector, irrespective of educational background or experience.

In a growing number of territories, the Awards meet the regulatory qualification requirements relevant to advisers. In other non-regulated environments, they regularly provide a development pathway where no local educational or professional provision is available. 

The Award is particularly suitable for:

  • Non-UK Financial Advisers and Insurance Agents working outside the UK
  • Non-UK Financial Advisers needing to satisfy the minimum operating standards set by a local regulator

Before studying, check to see whether any of your previous academic qualifications or credits from other professional bodies and institutes can be carried towards completion of the Award.
