A one day course

This intensive workshop will work through the case that will be examined in the April 2017 sitting.

The exam is based on a fact find that will be issued about two weeks before the exam. It will be written in a typical “know your customer” format, but will not give you the client’s objectives. The client is usually a high net worth customer with sophisticated needs.

The exam tests your ability to give advice so will cover:

  • what additional information you need to give advice

  • what options are available that would enable the client to meet their objectives

  • the advantages and disadvantages of the different options

  • what you would recommend together with a justification

  • an explanation of the product you have recommended

  • what you would discuss at a future review

The workshop will work though the case study as a group to identify the client’s objectives, the likely questions, how they should be answered and to revise the technical points arising from these questions.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • identify the likely questions

  • analyse how they should be answered

  • have an understanding of the technical points arising from these questions

The outline schedule for the day is:

9am - Registration
