  • I relied on the AF5 analysis heavily for my exam and was delighted to receive the pass. I would always recommend the team at Brand for their resources and customer service.

  • I just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team! I had an email conversation with your technical team, and the speed and clarity of your responses, plus the friendliness inherent in the tone was a breath of fresh air. I passed my exam last week and your support in those moments of doubt and confusion around particular questions and scenarios was brilliant, as are your training notes and resources generally.

  • 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.

  • I found the style and layout of your R03 study text very good and easy to use. I liked that trusts were separated out because it made it a lot easier to learn about all the different tax rules for each type of trust. It was so much easier to follow than the CII study text that once I had it I didn't bother looking at the CII study text again!

  • "I have just passed my exam first time, once again, relying mainly on your study notes. The calculation workbook was very useful, helping me to understand and work through the calculations, as were the mock exams giving me practice for the exam itself. Thank you!"

  • "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
  • "The calculation work book for AF4 was really helpful. A question on Return on Equity came up and I'd literally only come across this in the Brand workbook. Glad to say I passed the exam with flying colours!"
    Russell HammondRussell HammondSenior Partner, London
  • I have passed R06 using only the 'Brand' material for revision.  A lot of similar questions came up.  I learnt the model answers verbatim, which helped I think gain near maximum marks on similar questions.
    John KellyParaplanner, Chase de Vere, London
  • "Pleased to inform you I passed! I just want to thank you for your calculation work book as I would not have Passed without it. Thanks for an excellent personal service and encouragement."
    Christopher HargreavesChristopher HargreavesInvestment Adviser, Southport
  • I am finally Diploma qualified after passing R06. Thank you to the Brand Financial Training team – your training materials for R06 and other exams have been invaluable to me.
