  • The Brand analysis was excellent, definitely covered all major areas. There was no waffle in the revision material; it was straight to the point and concise! The email support day was great, and the team were very thorough with their answers which was very much appreciated.

  • "Brand Financial Training's great material was easy to use and really helped me get through some areas to get the Diploma. I'll use them next time for future exams."
    Giovanni ManigliaGiovanni ManigliaWealth Management Adviser, Lloyds TSB, Bristol
  • "The R01 videos, study notes, workbook and practice papers were so helpful and made revision a lot more approachable. It really helped me to pass when I failed before! I look forward to using your other materials for the other exams!"

  • I gained Chartered Financial Planner status in early 2017 and wanted to thank you for your support throughout my years of study to attain this qualification. It was a hard slog at times but worth it in the end. I have used Brand material for all exams, bar the G60 exam back in 1998, and have found it invaluable. It has always cut through the rather bland CII material and made study far more palatable. Brand has continued to evolve and improve the delivery of the learning material which has proved to be a fantastic investment.

  • "At the age of 20 I became the youngest person to hold the CII Diploma. I achieved this through hard work and the use of resources including those provided by Brand Financial Training; in particular the mock exams, study notes and the extremely helpful Calculation Workbooks. I'm now moving forward with the Advanced Diploma and continue to use Brand Financial Training's resources to aid my progression to Chartered Status. I certainly recommend them."

  • "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."

  • The R06 analysis was brilliant and helped me to answer questions effectively without spending too much time. I would most definitely recommend the analysis to anybody. I have used Brand Financial Training for most of my exams now and it’s the most valuable exam resources going, I can confidently say having tried many of the others! Thank you very much for the support.

  • "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
  • I found the Brand Financial Training R06 analysis extremely useful when preparing for my exam and passed with 76%, which I’m not sure I would have gotten without your material. The most helpful aspect was identifying the sequence of questions that are likely to be asked in the exam. This allowed me to focus on ‘core areas’ to secure the bulk of the marks. This is questions like ‘detail the additional information required’ and the generic questioning.

  • "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."
