Why our customers love us

  • "As an IFA with the normal family commitments - my issue with exams is pure and simple - time. I don't have the time to spend hours reading bulky CII manuals. I don't have the time to look for 100% pass marks and I don't have the time to risk failing and having to re-sit. for me, this is where the Brand material brings enormous value: summary study notes,example calculations and practice questions all focussed on one thing that's important - getting a pass mark! ...The Brand material is the solution to any adviser in a similar postion to me. it is inexpensive, yet provides enormous value in terms of time saved and results obtained. I am more than happy to fully endorse it and say a big thank you to Catriona for her outstanding contribution to my personal achievement"

  • "There is no doubt that without Brand Financial Training our road towards passing these exams would have been a lot steeper!! There is no doubt that R02 caused the most pain but without your comprehensive notes on formulas etc it would have been even more painful simply because the book was so bland."
    Mark CourageMark CourageDirector and Lifestyle Financial Planner, Encompass Financial Management Ltd, Berkshire
  • "I am pleased to say I passed AF5 using Brand's AF5 Fact-Find Analysis. I am now preparing my application for Chartered Status! I have used the Brand materials for a number of the exams along the way and have found them to be most useful and very reasonably priced and always recommend them to colleagues."
    Tammie SteadmanTammie SteadmanChartered Financial Planner, Footes Financial Planning UK, Birmingham
  • "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've used your resources for 3 exams so far and have always passed first time.  I find these questions help to highlight those areas in which I am weak and which may need further study.  I also find that questions in the exam are phrased in a way that I would not normally use, and that reading mock questions helps me to be aware of and alert to these.  Your mock papers were invaluable in helping me to prepare for my exams."
    John BisattJohn BisattAdviser, Palmer Lane, Cardiff
  • "Your R06 analysis helped me to pass. In fact I spent most of my revision time using your analysis. The detailed breakdowns and the section on the "general" recurring questions meant that I didn't feel that I was scrambling around for marks at all. The key for me was using the analysis you provided as the cornerstone for my exam preparation because the case studies could lead you off the scent or you could miss key CII clues but moreover it allowed me to structure my answers in the exam in a format that I would not have known to otherwise and made for efficient use of time. I have no doubt that your analysis not only gave me the knowledge to pass the exam but a way to demonstrate that knowledge effectively so that the examiner had little/no guesswork in what I was trying to communicate. I recommend your analysis for anyone taking the exam in the future because it gives an efficient, accurate breakdown of what is likely to be asked and the generic section is also hugely valuable too."
    David GunnDavid GunnAdviser, Nottingham
  • “I finally passed – going from 47% the first time round to 59% this time with Brand Financial Training’s help. I felt I probably did the same amount of studying but this time around I was much more focused on the likely questions using your analysis. I'd definitely highly recommend your materials to anyone else in the industry.”
    Stephen DavidsonStephen DavidsonBirmingham
  • "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
  • "The analysis was excellent and extremely helpful in giving guidance on how to present the answers. The sample questions did prove to be very close to the actual questions that appeared in the exam paper."
    Leah RobertsLeah RobertsClient Liaison Manager, Entrust Financial Planners, Cheshire
  • "I'm now Chartered... I have sat six exams in a year - all supported by Brand and passed them all. Thank you!"
