The London Institute of Banking & Finance recognised CPD Programme

As an Investment Adviser you need to prove to an accredited body that:

  • You have a diploma at level 4 that is RDR compliant.
  • You have 35 hours total Continuing Personal Development for the preceding year.
  • You have a minimum of 21 hours of structured training out of the 35 hours.
  • You have to sign a declaration to guarantee that you have not breached any of the approved person's principles for business.

New Leaf can assist you.

New Leaf offer weekly web based training for £295.00 + VAT per annum per adviser.

You will also receive a recording and all materials issued through the session should you miss the live streamed training.

Including the LIBF fee of £83.00 pa (no VAT) this makes a total of £375.00, or £435.00 inc VAT per adviser.

Our programme is all based on structured activity. We recognise the FCA is allowing 14 of the 35 hours can be 'unstructured' CPD. However, for many advisers, perhaps within a network, may face significant administrative problems in verifying their activity.

The FCA have said the SPS would provide customers with evidence that the adviser:

  • subscribes to a code of ethics
  • is qualified
  • and has kept their knowledge up to date.

NB - The SPS is evidence that the adviser subscribes to professional standards. This does not remove the obligation from a firm or network to assess competency under the requirements in the FCA Handbook. The FCA is clear that each adviser is ultimately responsible to ensure they obtain their own SPS each year.

We recommend The London Institute of Banking & Finance as the accredited body for two reasons;

1. We have dealt with the organisation for over 10 years and believe they deliver professional qualifications at an affordable cost.

2. The LIBF SPS costs are very competitive at just £81.00 per annum for non-LIBF members.

However, individual advisers have the right to choose the accredited body that best one for their needs. The principal firm cannot insist that any of its advisers use one body in particular. They can only make recommendations based upon their own research.
