Financial Services Personnel doing their job

Advice and Planning

Including: Financial Advisors/Planners, Mortgage Advisors, Protection Advisors, Pensions Advisors, Equity Release Advisors, Paraplanners

Financial Advisors are here to offer educated counsel on all types of money matters. Often, they specialise in distinct areas such as mortgages, pensions, taxes and investments. A lot of responsibility falls on a financial advisor, whose guidance has a great impact on the recipient.

As a result, Financial Advisors have to have the ability to keep up to date with their specialist markets and any legislation that may affect their clients. This is why, all Financial Advisers operating in the UK must be qualified by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) at a minimum of Level 4. For example, they must hold one of the below:

  • CII (Chartered Insurance Institute) Diploma Regulated Financial Planning Level 4
  • CISI (Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment) Investment Advice Diploma Level 4
  • IFS Diploma for Financial Advisers and Professional Certificate in Banking Level 4

This is in addition to holding a Statement of Professional Standing (SPS) certificate to prove their eligibility to operate as an advisor. At Select, we have invested in the specialist tools needed to find and recruit people with the necessary qualifications.

Compliance & Administration

Including: Compliance Officers, Finance Administrators, Financial Analysts, Auditors, Fraud Investigators

Compliance when it comes to money matters is critical to get right, whether it is corporate or personal financing. Regulating businesses, professionals and people to ensure their finances are all above board is an import task that can weed out any corruption or malpractice.

Financial compliance and administration professionals need to be steadfast, methodical and thorough.

Client Services

Including: Wealth Managers, Relationship Managers, Portfolio Managers, Policy Managers

Client Services personnel do not offer direct advice to the client. Managers in client services form a bridge between the company and the client; ensuring that all procedures run smoothly, and any issues are ironed out.

Cool, calm, collected and knowledgeable about their niche; client services personnel are key to the smooth running of any client relationship.
