Why our customers love us

  • "Would highly recommend both the past analysis & analysis for the exam you are sitting. I felt these really helped me understand what the examiners were looking for and how to answer questions."
    Rebecca WelthyRebecca WelthyParaplanner, Essex
  • "A really great resource. Of particular use was the audio masterclass which was constantly on whilst driving between client meetings. This void of "dead time" was filled with a productive revision session instead. I combined this with the study notes which was far easier to digest than the AF3 manual. This paper has the lowest number of candidates passing out of all the AF4 papers and I was delighted to pass this first time, as well as the corresponding JO5 paper."
    Chris BinnsChris BinnsIndependent Financial Adviser, Model Wealth Management, York
  • "It was hard for me to commit myself to start studying again as I am a full time mum of two under 5. However, I took the challenge and  decided to go for it. I was looking for past papers and that's when I came across the mock exams through the Brand Financial Training website. After doing them over and over again I was able to revise  the areas I was weak in. It gave me confidence and I was ready for the exams. If I didn't do these papers I would have been a nervous wreck! I guess I owe a big thank you to Brand Financial Training."

  • "The webinar (e-learning) is a refreshing way of studying especially like me if you're a working parent juggling studying between working fulltime and attending to children! It's more practical than a book!"
    Lucy MannLucy MannAdministrator, Suffolk
  • "I'm now Chartered... I have sat six exams in a year - all supported by Brand and passed them all. Thank you!"
    Scott MiddletonScott MiddletonJ M Taylor, Aberdeen
  • "I've used Brand resources for all of my exams over the past 2 years and have passed them all! The study notes are a great start to revision as they break down a subject into more manageable chunks. The papers are also a good study aid to check your knowledge is up to scratch. I've recommended them in the past and I will continue to do so!"
    JenniJenniParaplanner, Surrey
  • "I found the masterclass audio an ideal alternative to book based learning for my AF3. It was good to get an alternative take on the subject matter. I also found it invaluable as a learning resource for those long car drives and early morning runs. I found it a very efficient use of my time."
    Stuart BrewerStuart BrewerIFA, LFS and Partners, Devon
  • "The R06 case study analysis was fantastic!  There was nothing in the exam that wasn't covered.  Brand was recommended to me by a colleague who said "you don't need anything else" and they were correct. I would happily recommend your services."
    Edward BarstowEdward BarstowWealth Account Manager, Aviva, Sheffield
  • "I took J05 and wanted to say that I wouldn't have passed it without your help, some of the questions that came up were not studied by the CII study book. However, these areas were covered in your study material and practice questions which saved the day!"
    Deborah HughesDeborah HughesFinancial Planning Manager, Ashley Law Ltd, Crawley
  • "... I discovered the Brand Financial Training Calculation Workbook. This was an absolute godsend for me, the workbook covered every conceivable type of calculation question and then gave plenty of each type to work through. Once I had worked through (and understood) several of the different calculations, I became so much more confident and dare I say actually started to enjoy the complex calculations; seeing them as an easy way to pick up marks. Brand Financial Training are so easy to deal with and the purchased material comes through instantly via email. Thank you Brand Financial Training."
