Statement of Professional Standing 2014-15

The FCA requires that all retail investment advisers hold a Statement of Professional Standing (SPS).

An SPS can only be issued by an FCA appointed accredited body, such as the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), and confirms that an adviser:
  • Has adhered to a code of ethical standards
  • Holds the required qualifications for the activities they undertake; and
  • Has completed appropriate CPD and complied with APER (Statements of Principle and Code of Practice for Approved Persons)
Here is my latest certificate:

valid until 31 January 2015
