Training School

“I have been working in this industry for over 28 years and it has been a long held ambition of mine to create a school for the training of IFAs. The dream is now a reality.”

With these words in 2004 Debbie Tissot of Assured Future, launched the first dedicated training school for IFAs in the UK. Based in Buckinghamshire, the school is intended to select and train newcomers to financial services in the technical, business and sales skills needed to become a competent IFA. Each new entrant is given a Training Contract which itemises what is expected of the individual and the support that will be given by Assured Future. The school uses the skills and knowledge of experienced IFAs to provide practical, ‘on-the-job’ training combined with dedicated formal study to pass the necessary regulatory examinations.

“We see training as an on-going, integral part of the development of competent IFAs who must not only understand the technical aspects of our business but also be sensitive to the individual needs of new and existing clients.”
