You can use our online diagnostic tool to assess how your firm provides financial advice against a number of questions under each heading of the ADVISE™ framework. This tool is available free of charge for you to use now.
We can facilitate a one day assessment workshop with your key managers from functions such as sales, compliance, training, marketing, risk, sales quality, etc. This workshop will comprise of the following:
- Introduction to the ADVISE™ framework and our best practice standards for your financial advice operating model.
- Understanding the regulatory agenda, current expectations and the direction of travel of the FCA.
- Benchmarking and assessing your advice operating model: using our online assessment we will create with you an assessment of your strengths and weaknesses as they are now and agree reasonable targets for improvement.
- Improvement planning: agreeing an improvement plan prioritised around how you can gain most improvements in advice quality as well as achieving increased efficiency and cost reduction.
You will also be provided with a detailed report and spreadsheet showing your assessment scores so that you can monitor your progress and benchmark again later to track your improvements.
For an additional charge, Enterprise Learning can carry out a short independent review of your advice operations so that at the workshop we can provide you with our assessment of your strengths and weaknesses and recommendations for improvement.
