Standard Life launches “Adviser Edge” CII accredited CPD learning Hub for advisers


Standard Life has launched the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) accredited CPD learning hub for advisers. Working closely with the CII, the hub has been developed by Standard Life technical experts to offer a set of learning and development modules, designed to support advisers and their businesses in the retirement market.

Noel Butwell, Standard Life Distribution Director, says: “The introduction of pension freedoms has changed how adviser businesses operate. Research by Defaqto shows that 78 per cent of advisers have seen an increase in the demand for at-retirement advice since last April. I have no doubt this demand for advice will continue to grow. We want to support advisers when it comes to dealing with the changes in the industry and the impact it may be having on their business. In line with FCA regulations, the Adviser Edge Hub will help advisers continue to further increase their technical knowledge and fulfil their adviser CPD requirements. We’re delighted the CII chose to collaborate with us to develop this training programme for the adviser market.”
The Adviser Edge learning programme is divided into modules designed for use by the business owners/decision makers and business writers of an adviser business. Those undertaking the modules will be directed to the best route for them.
Tamsin Mills, director of accreditation at the CII, says: "We are delighted to have had the opportunity to support the Adviser Edge programme. The need for consistent and competent advice at retirement has never been greater, nor as complex, and Standard Life are to be congratulated on bringing this initiative to market"
